The original pin that I found was HERE. She, as you can see if you read her post, found the inspiration from someone else. I love how Pinterest allows us to "pay it forward" of sorts and pass on these awesome ideas. I will admit that I picked up the Martha Stewart butterfly punch at JoAnn's after seeing this idea. Hey, I had a coupon!
I started with a frame that I had purchased on clearance at Wal-Mart. The photo mat had some strange saying on it and I guess they didn't sell well. My first step was to take apart the frame and trash the mat. I then cut a Cheerios box to fit the size of the frame. Then I cut a piece of cardstock from a DCWV stack that I had on hand. Now I have the backing for my project.
The colors aren't the greatest in these photos, but I think it turned out really well.
This photo shows the dimension of the butterflies. I like how it turned out and am happy that I left the glass off. I gave this to a special neighbor girl, whose dear Grandma recently passed away. Grandma Mary loved butterflies, so I thought this was a fitting craft to try out and give to Katrina.
