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. Step 1: Measure and cut your wire. Step 2: Find the center of the longer wire. Step 5: Find the center of the shorter wire, and wrap it around the base of the paintbrush.

Butterflies Are Free... so, in my usual wanderings i happened upon this butterfly wreath... very cute with all those little butterflies made of beautiful calligraphy and and vintage ads! but $25? nope...not going to spend $25 on something that i'm not quite sure i will adore... but i had a plan! {lazy girls always have a plan! usually it involves lying on the couch...but what do you think they are doing whilst lying on said couch...planning! scary, i know. but even though i have a Michael's gift card i couldn't just run over there and buy a wreath...my roots are gnarly and i really feel like i need a tummy tuck...so leaving the house was out of the question! those "freaky little things" became my wreath! now for the butterflies... easily solved! next stop, of course, a visit to The Graphics Fairy ...the "go to" headquarters for all your image needs! then i began to cut out my patterns...after i had done a couple i had a "u-duh!" necessity is the mother of invention... and...after all the falderal!

ELECTROSPHERIC RAY GUN (a free papercraft model) If you like keeping a ray gun handy, just to be on the safe side, then this electrospheric device should suit your needs quite nicely.

This paper model measures 10 inches in length, stands 6.5 inches tall, and is sturdy enough to actually play with!

Copper Ring Tutorial The ring I made before went well so I wanted to play around with that some more. Here I have a gauge 22 and 18 wire. The smaller the number the thicker the wire. Yes, it's a handle of some sort. This end makes a bigger ring, something like a size 8. the other end has a metal collar and is more like a size 6 1/2 - 7. This is the 18 gauge which I'm wrapping twice. Work one bead at a time. Once strung with a bead each wire goes behind in the opposite direction. Like so. Time to put the ring back on our "form". Now you want to make the wire and beads symmetrical. I prefer smaller ones so I snipped mine to an inch. With the thicker wire especially I need to get the spiral into my flat nosed and really crank. This spiral will sit below the top bead. Again, what you did with your first spiral do the opposite with the other. One in both sizes, each a little different.
