Baby Butterflies

It's springtime and the babies are popping up everywhere!  Like most things I do, I can't keep it too simple. So, when it comes to giving a baby shower gift, I look at the registry just to get a decor idea and then take matters into my own hands.  Who doesn't like a personalized gift?!

My dear friend Suzy of Lily Red Studio is expecting a baby girl this June and I couldn't be more excited for her and her hubby.  Being a creative type that is a stationer, I knew I wanted to tie her decor to paper.  I found these great butterfly gift tags in the sale bin at Michaels as well as some pretty sheets of scrapbook paper.  To get the pretty paper into the shapes of the butterflies, I simply used spray adhesive on the cutouts and then traced around the cutouts with my x-acto knife.


For my shadow box frame, I wanted a simple background to place the butterflies on.  I covered a board with canvas using fabric spray adhesive and some hot glue for the edges.

I simply gave the lil butterflies a soft fold to their wings and used hot glue to adhere them to my canvas board.  Nine butterflies later and I have a sweet gift for a sweet baby.

I just got Suzy's thank you note in the mail and word on the street is that this piece is already hanging perfectly in the nursery! Can't wait to meet Baby Rohan!
