A Nice Little Project...

I originally saw this project here and thought it would be perfect in Sophia's room (in the new house). It seemed easy enough...and it was! The hardest part of the whole project was taking 3 kids into the scrapbooking store :) The project, start to finish, took about 30 minutes.
Gather your supplies: a shadow box (mine was 12 x 12), a white piece of 12 x 12 cardstock, an assortment of papers, a butterfly punch (mine was from the Martha Stewart line from Wal-Mart) and some mini glue dots.
I marked my white cardstock with a pencil every 1 1/2 inches...leaving a 3 inch border around the edge.
I punched out my butterflies
Laid out my pattern first and then attached butterflies to the paper with the glue dots.
While I was attaching I slighty bent the wings up.
Place in shadow box with more glue dots to attach paper to back of shadow box.
That's it...easy peasy...and no butterflies were harmed in the making of this!
