My Butterfly Home Decor

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I am on vacation, but I have a whole week of posts planned for you.  :)

First, I thought I would share some butterfly home decor pieces that I created using The ScrapCake papers and wooden butterflies from Say It With Letters.  I used the Cozy Xmas collection from The ScrapCake, even though you will see that it is definitely not a Christmas project.  :)

Here are my butterflies:

These are actually a gift for someone.  Shhh!  I made them to go on the wall of my new niece's room!  I hope they (my brother and his wife) like them.  The idea is to hang them so they are flying up the wall.  But you could also bunch them on a shelf, similar to the picture above.  Each layer pops off too!  You can see what I am talking about in this picture:

I totally had fun with this.  :)

Here are the butterflies, one by one:

What do you think?  Even though they are for a baby, I thought it would be cool to not really look too baby-ish so she can grow with them...they can stay up longer (if they want them to).  

Well thanks for stoppin' in today!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Love these!

Very very cute! Great idea to use this paper... and to have them less babyish. It's so disappointing when baby things last such a short amount of time. This is creative.
