Vintage Page Designs: Patterned Paper Butterflies

Patterned Paper Butterflies

I'm still on a mission to use up my stash of patterned paper. Have you taken my challenge yet?  You could win a handmade art journal!

I recently organized a twinchie swap and wanted to include a little card with each package, but there were lots to make.  So, I created a bunch of really simple, but really cute (I think) 3" x 3" cards.

I die cut butterflies from pretty patterned paper that I'd been hoarding!  I stamped them with a script image and the sponged the edges.

The 3" x 3" bases are left over strips of watercolor paper from making my custom photo albums.

I adhered the butterflies to the bases and embellished their centres with a pearl, rhinestone or button.

Here's the finished batch.

I hope you'll take my patterned paper stash challenge and lighten the load in your craft room!

Happy creating!
