Butterflies Love Dahlias
Welcome to the Club Scrap artist challenge! If you've arrived here from Donna's post then you're in the right place. You can start from the beginning at Club Scrap.
We've been given the challenge to create butterflies or flowers from paper and incorporate them into our projects. I had actually pinned dozens of handmade flower ideas until I got a look at my Easter photos and just had to do butterflies! My niece is just the cutest little bug that I adore with my whole heart. Getting a photo of her is almost impossible. Even when I put the camera on "sports" mode. I wish I had that energy...
Once I started with the layout, I just knew it was going to be more of a wall art piece than a scrapbook layout. I was just having fun adding dimension. It just might end up being a Mother's Day gift.
Club Scrap papers and tags. Creatology feather. Style Steals flower. Celebrate it! doily and wood title. Copics and Stickles for accents.
I used this 2 minute video to make these lovely origami butterflies. I added straight pins for the antennae and pearl strips on the body to make them more feminine. These little guys are so easy to make. Using a light weight paper is the key to this technique. You can also see Tricia make that three part bow on YouTube.
