Butterfly Love


I got this new butterfly paper punch for my birthday.... and I LOVE it!  I've been punching through all kinds of paper just to test it out.  I even took the punch to one of my not-so-good paintings (yes, I have paintings now and then that just do not work out)  and recycled it into little watercolor butterflies!


These may end up as some decorations for my mom :)

  5. I've recently been on a butterfly kick as well- only I use my Silhouette to do all of the hard work. I LOVE the idea of using old drawings/paintings. You could use children's drawings to cut out butterflies or flower petals to make something beautiful for Mother's day! If you get a second, I'd LOVE for you to share this at Sweet Sharing Monday http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday-2/

  13. These are just beautiful. Perfect for a little girls room. The punch that you have must be a realistic butterfly because they seem to have a lot of details on the wings. I would really like to know where you got it. Thanks!
