Paper Butterfly Embellishment Tutorial

Jana was nice enough to send me the step-by-step directions to her cute butterfly embellishments!
She used our Spring Mini Scalloped Flower Tags

Step 1
Cut two flat-tipped wedges from circular journaling spot. Reserve cut pieces.
Step 2
Apply foam square adhesive to center of butterfly.
Step 3
Using reserved cut pieces overlap them slightly to create the layers of the butterfly wings.

Step 4
Wrap string, wire, or ribbon around the center of the butterfly to create the body. Tie the ends in a knot and trim to equal lengths for antennae.
Step 5
Use your fingers to curl up the edges of the journaling spot. Add jewels, if desired.
Now, you can add your cute butterfly to layouts, cards, mini albums, gift tags, anything your heart desires!!
Thanks Jana for the quick and easy tutorial!
xoxo, Veronica
