Spring time Butterflies 10 minute project


Here is my most recent post at the ThermOWeb blog  go check it out

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for spring.  I saw these very cute butterflies in one of the new spring children’s catalogs that comes in the mail.  They could be pinned on to what ever you were wearing and they were made out of fabric.  So I thought that I would try it.  So I got out a PeelNStick sheet, and some chipboard shapes from my scrapbooking stash.  I traced around a couple of butterflies and now the hard part, picking out fabric ;)
Now that you have your fabric picked out you then stick the PeelNStick on the fabric and cut around the desired shape.  I also wanted my to bend a little bit so I put a small piece of wire between the fabric and it gives it just a touch of movement.
Now that you have your pieces cut out you can layer and embellish them.  I stacked 2 of them together and added some pearl stones on them.  As you can see I made the blue one into a hair clip, that my daughter just loves and uses every day.
The Orange one I made into a pin that she can put on her clothing.  In the first picture we added it to her shirt and the second one we put it on one of her decorative pillows that she has in her room.  I think it is going to stay on the pillow for now.
Thank you so much for looking at my project today, just imagine all that you could make with these super fun and quick peelNSticksheets.
Have a great week,
