Paper Scraps

So like any good crafter I have buckets of scraps lying around begging to be used. I came across this idea in Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft Magazine Vole 16 No 12. I made two different versions and even pulled out the old sewing maching for a bit of interest on the butterfly.
Here is what I used:
Stamps: So Happy For You (Sale-A-Bration set)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Greenhouse Gala DSP, Subtles DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Rhinestones, Big Shot & Bigz Beautiful Butterflies Die, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Daffodil Delight Ribbon
These were super easy to do just get a scrap of cardstock and strips of leftover DSP to make your desired pattern. Add some interest with punched edges and sewing then run the cardstock through your Big Shot with the butterfly die and voila instant jazzy butterflies! This is great for using up all those bits lying around and is a new look too.
Hope you are having a creative day,
