More Butterflies

Hi All
Yesterday at our Stampin up event which was attended by 20 lovely ladies, Aly had prepared a beautiful project on the theme of butterflies.
Several of the ladies put their own ideas into the design and so they all looked slightly different, they were all beautiful and the ladies really enjoyed making the project. I can't wait to have a go at it myself.
Our next class is on Saturday 2nd March, so if you would like to join us please let me know.
Until next time

Butterfly wreath

Hi All
We had a good day at our Stampin up event with 20 lovely ladies. We made a gorgeous 3D project using a frame which I will show you tomorrow. Today I am going to show you one of the samples that I had made for the display table. I saw this on Pinterest some time ago and adapted it using different colours. When our supplies arrive from Stampin up they re protected in the box with lots of brown paper. I used this brown paper and cut out scallop circles which I scrunched into flowers and then stuck them to the polystyrene wreath. I finished off with butterflies cut in various sizes.
