Bellissima Butterflies

Afternoon crafters,

How are we all on this dreary Wednesday?  Good I hope.  I’ve had a lazy morning and am just sitting down now to catch up on some crafting admin and have a bit of a nosy round everyone’s sites.

I just wanted to share a docrafts Bellissima make with you. These papers are just lovely, super summery and perfect for this make. I’ve had these vintage type cotton spools in my craft room for a while now didn’t want to use them as they’re so lovely!

I’ve wrapped paper around the spool and added a short length of Oyster Blush Crochet Border and to that I’ve added palm punched flowers.

To add to the vintage feel, I’ve inked the edges of all the papers which makes them look like they’ve been in the sun for a while.

The butterflies are made using Xcut’s Butterfly nesting dies and their Palm Punch Basic Butterfly.  The wire, a simple floristry wire, has been sandwiched in-between the layers and twisted at the top to make antennae.  A small blob of hot glue into the spool allows you to press the wires in place to secure them upright.

The small sentiments have been printed off the computer-nothing fancy!

I’ve backed the butterflies with embossed papers so their is interest from all sides and you can twist the butterflies round t face  whatever direction you like!

This little make has been handed over to my eldest daughter as she is a very butterfly/girlie girl, although I think she’d rather they were made with Disney’s Frozen characters… although bear in mind she is 16 and not 6!

Catch up soon x
