Charity Hotrum here with my very first post for Just Imagine/Kreaxions. My new toys tools arrived with the morning mail and I had them strewn about my livingroom floor in no time. I've had vellum on the brain so I started with the Butterfly Die and Punch 901. This is what I came up with:
Step 1: Cut 6 butterflies from vellum.
Step 2: Fold 5 of the butterflies in half. Cut the Antenna and lower body off of 4 of the butterflies.
Step 3: Stack the butterflies so that the unfolded butterfly is on the bottom and the folded butterfly with the antenna is on the top.
Step 4: Pierce 4 holes in the stacked butterflies as shown in the photograph.
Step 6: Wrap the twine through each layer of butterfly wings so that the wings stand out. Tie off the string and adhere it to the back of the butterfly.
Step 8:Punch a strip of alternate colored cardstock several times with Punch 901 and insert "A". Adhere the resulting butterfly confetti to the top and bottom of the card.
This technique will work with any type of paper, cardstock, or even foil that can be put through a diecut machine.
I'd love to see any project this post inspires. Please post a link to the comment section of this post or on the Facebook Page.
