Hold The Phone,
Shut the FRONT door,
and Butter my Biscuits....
I have a craft post to share. I actually took the time to take pictures.
These cute butterflies are very cute, fairly simple and add a special touch to a gift. What is even better is all the possibilities, you could do this with stars, flowers, animal shapes, rattles for a baby shower, etc. You will need: a few sheets of scrapbook paper in the colors and prints that you want, a hot glue gun, twist ties from a bread bag and any extra pieces you might need to make your design special. For these butterflies I used bronze metal that you can find in any jewelry making aisle of a craft store.
Cut out your shapes on several different sheets. For the butterflies, I cut out enough to have four layers of paper for each butterfly.
On one cut-out you will slice two small holes and run the twist tie through. Next take your hot glue gun and glue the remaining layers on. I glued my metal butterfly "antennas"
Here is what your holes should look like before you start layering the rest of the paper.
Add details. I added my metal "antennas" and purple body....
Pull and bend each layer out to create a fluttering effect and also so you can see all of the different layers of pretty paper...
Puncture two holes in your gift bag and attach butterflies.
Add some twine and complimenting ribbon to tie up the bag and TA-DA...
custom gift bag, done.
