Yesterday was a busy day…. it was my dear sweet girl’s third birthday, and she wanted a “Butterfly Party.” I couldn’t find any butterfly decorations at our local stores, so I whipped up a few paper butterflies to hang on our chandelier for her party.
Here’s how they turned out:
First I cut out a butterfly shape from plain cardstock. Then I took decorative card stock and folded it in half (to get mirror images) and cut out some hearts, paisleys and teardrop shapes. I glued them with gluestick on both sides, them trimmed them with some Elmer’s 3-D glue, to make it shimmer.
Not too fancy, but I used what I had in my studio. When I go to hand them in her room, I have to rig them up with some fishing line so that they “float.” Oh, the fun of crafting for little birthday girls!
