(yep, it's still Take-A-Look Tuesday - just scroll down a post for that!)
I knew just what to do with the butterfly die cut when I saw it....
I have seen several butterfly walls in bedrooms recently and thought it'd be perfect for my girls' room. Most recently I saw the one over at Living with Punks - isn't it cute?? (see all about the amazing room HERE)
She hand-cut all her butterflies - I used the die cut which made it go pretty fast. They come out of the die cut with dotted lines where you can fold the shapes to give them a more dimensional shape - how easy is that?!!
And since I was up in their room taking pictures, and the floor was visible, I turned around and snapped one of the Cheap Giant Print so you can see that it's still holding up and not fading or anything:
Anyways, back to the die cut - - it makes it so easy to mass produce things like butterflies! Crank the paper through (I used cardstock, double-stacked so I could cut 2 at once), fold on the preset lines, glue and done! There's a whole new line of fun spring die cuts over at Lifestyle Crafts, so be sure to check it out (and remember, discount with the code SUGARBEE)
