Paper Butterfly Collector

A little collection of paper butterflies for you. If your paper collection is anything like mine then you have a wide range of paper butterflies too :)

Details: These paper butterflies are from the Whoop-De-Doo collection from GCD Studios. Cut out by hand and detailed with a fine marker then shaped on a knitting needle. I've made a frame from cardboard and embossed the cover by hand using a cuttlebug folder as the stencil (well it was just a bit too wide for the machine!). The positive ribs are painted with Shimmerz - Mmm Choc-o-lat.

Papers - GCD Studios; K&Co
Usual Suspects - Paper trimmer; Silicone glue; Double-sided tape; Scissors
Other - Fine marker; Shimmerz paint Cho-o-lot; Embossing folder; embossing tool; Knitting needle; cardboard; cardstock
