Flutter Away

Hello Wendy! Here is a tutorial (and lots of links to other fun butterfly projects) on those little butterflies. I used Monopoly money for the pattern and envelopes. I so hope your daughter has as much fun as I did!

Monopoly Butterfly

8x8 canvas "beauty caught"

Paperma made some wonderful things with her butterfly punch.

Crafter's Toy Box

Amazon has a couple of sizes. And the Quilling Store.

Anna Griffin Large BUTTERFLY Image Paper Punch.

This looks like a smaller version.

Looks like Martha Stewart might have a butterfly punch (I want one of those ;) (I did't find it on MS site, but a few on eBay and here.

Butterfly Chandelier at Fancy Schmancy.

Weekend Creative : February #2 : punch collage with Ali Edwards and LollyChops has a nice tutorial.

Butterfly pattern and remember this amazing Butterfly Alphabet.

Beautiful Butterfly custom (with template!) at FamilyFun. I don't think it has to be Halloween to have such a wonderful set of wings to wear! Butterfly Mobile (think smaller with punch ;)

One last thing. I made this paper wedding cake years ago. Added these little butterflies as the "wedding cake topper". Here is one you could print and cut out without a punch.

Click on image for the large version. Save this to your desktop and print this, you might need to reduce size for smaller butterfly:

I love this project Kim...thanks for posting it. I've filed it away for when life is less hectic but it's a definate "do" for me.

Hi Kim
Thank you so much for taking the time to post all this lovely fluttery stuff. We are going to have so much fun in the coming weeks! Unfortuately we are still sruggling to find a nice butterfly punch but we'll keep trying what one have you used, the wing shapes are lovely? I keep seeing the Matha Stewart punch mentioned but we cant get hold of it in the UK, and how we would love a shop like 'Michaels' we'd never be out of there!!!
Again thank you so much for taking time out for us
Wendy & Ashley xxx
