We had such lovely weather this weekend. Is it time for butterflies yet? I've always been fascinated when they come flitting by. We never have very many around the house, maybe we need to plant different things to attract them. I might not always be able to see butterflies outside, but I can always create with them. I love vintage butterflies. If you like this one, you can dowload it below.
How about quick and easy packaging? This will only take you about 5 minutes, but I think someone would still be impressed with this vivid butterfly! Here are some of the things I used:
I love the pretty kraft treat bag (just one of 4 designs from my store) and the tiny punch (Petite Curly Label Punch).
I stamped it with one of the hearts from the Language of Love stamp set.
No need to glue the doily - just wrap it with washi tape. Be sure to make the washi a little longer than the fold over of the doily on the back - that way it will hold it down.
Another tip: Stick a piece of cardstock inside when you wrap and tie the twine. That way the bag won't bunch and it's easier to make the twine tight.
I also created a card using the same butterfly. You wouldn't think a green butterfly would be that versatile, but amazingly it goes with lots of things! If you would like to download a copy of the butterfly, click HERE.
Have a wonderful week!
