Wind-up paper butterflies are my fave (guest post from amelia)
I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from super crafter and cute mom, Amelia of The Homebook. Growing up, I had an aunt who lived in Canada. Every year for my birthday she’d send me a card and a fancy little gift. She always found the neatest things! One year, when I was maybe 10 or 11, she sent me another card—and when I opened it up, a paper butterfly fluttered out of the card.
I made my butterflies into Monarchs, but you could use different materials to create any sort of colorful butterfly. Materials: You’ll need heavy cardstock, 24 gauge wire, silicone rubber bands (I found mine in the hair aisle at Walgreens) needle-nose pliers, scissors, tape, a paintbrush, a black marker, and a white ink pen.

Cupcake Liner Butterflies - You see butterflies everywhere these days. I’ve been thinking about making some special butterflies since last fall when we said good-bye to our precious friend, Grace.
When I saw Somerset Life’s ‘Cupcake Liner’ challenge I couldn’t help trying my hand at making some out of paper. I took plain white cupcake liners, wooden clothespins, paint, glitter, ink, and some sparkly jewels and created some sweet butterfly clips. For large butterflies I used 4 jumbo sized liners…. I folded them in half… Folded them in half again… Then I glued them together at the corners and glued the pairs overlapping like this… You can add shape to the wings by cutting around the edges… Sponging some ink at the outer edges adds a touch of color… I painted the clothespins with soft acrylic colors (cuz I love to paint!) A snip of natural twine works well for antennae… I added some drops of glue to the ends and dipped them in glitter… I took the painted clothespins, twine antennae, and some sparklies to create the body… FREE FAST SHIPPING 6 hanging 11" ceiling wall tissue paper pom pom butterfly party wedding,baby shower,christenings, nursery decorations.
