Butterfly Tutorial

Hey my sweet friends!

Finally i`m here with my very first tutorial ever, lol, so i hope you bear with me. This is a butterfly i saw at Wild Orchid Crafts. I couldn`t find it in there anymore so i thought i`d make my own tutorial of it.

This is what you need:


A five petal flower like the one on the pic below and a pearl stamen. Both are available at Wild Orchid Crafts. In addition you will need hot glue, pearls or rhinestones to embellish your butterfly with and some stickles or glue and glitter.


First you`ll have to fold one of the petals to the back of the flower.



The back will look like this.



Now you fold the petal and make a little snip on the middle of it.



Then you fold the pearlstamen in two, and put the little loop down in the little hole from the front side of the petal.



This is how it looks like from the backside.



Now you put on some hot glue for a quick fixative and fold the petal over the stamen.



Now you have the butterfly with the antennas. But it looks a bit boring just like this. You can embellish it any way you like. I have used stickles on the edges of the wings and put a couple of pearls in the middle of it. If you prefer to use glue and glitter to embellish the edges that`s entirely up to you. You can also use rhinestones instead of the pearls or maybe you want to drop the glitter and put some rhinestones on the wings as well. It is just your imagination that sets the limit.



Here is my finished butterfly. If you want to see how it looks on a card you can take a peek in this link.

Hope you liked my tutorial and that it was close to self explanatory, lol. Good luck in trying to make your own.

Hei Mona dette ble virkelig kjempelekkert, så smart måte å lage en sommerfugl på og såååå vakker som den ble :)
Har en erstatning til limpistolen til deg, jeg limer alt med den, har tilogmed limt skåler av keramikk som etterpå kan vaskes i oppvaskmaskin.
Den heter Panokitt Quick glue, og fester kjempefort. Jeg limer ellers esker jeg bretter, blomster, perlen, knapper...ja, alt med den. Har aldri brukt limpistol i scrappingen når jeg tenker etter ;) Håper du tester den og er like fornøyd som meg. Jeg kaller den kvinnenes svar på Lynlimet he-he
Du finner den på alle butikker som selger Panduro produkter.

Kortet du laget her nedenfor et bare fantastisk flott, så lekkert med alle perlene og motivet var råflott :) Helheten heeeelt nydelig :)
Klem Lill
