Stampin' Up! Butterfly Prints &
Butterfly Paper Punch
My Spring workshop for my teacher group was last Friday. They always want a 3D project so I decided to do a trio of projects with a butterfly theme. I really love Butterfly Prints as it has several butterflies to chose from AND they can be punched out with a Stampin' Up! punch perfectly.
The treat bag was designed after a project that appeared in the Stampin' Up! Magazine for demonstrators. I tweaked it a bit to fit my needs and then designed a greeting card and note card to match. And you all know how I love 3x3 cards. Nuff said!

Putting It Together Tips:
- For the greeting card, after punching out one of the 2 3/8'' Scallop Circles, I placed it on a scoring surface and using the bone folder I scored across the Scallop Circle intersecting the center on all scores. Then using a Sponge Dauber I applied Soft Suede Classic Ink to the edges.
- To create the pleated background for the Butterfly Bag, I punched two 2 3/8'' Scallop Circles and scored as above. Then I cut to the center (half way through the circle) and accordion folded both circles. Next I applied 2-Way Glue Pen to an end fold and glued the two halves together. In retrospect I probably would have shaded the circle as I did in the previous circle first to give more dimension.
- The Embosslit Sweet Buttons die cuts were used both as decoration and for function to hold the pleated component together. It was held to the bag using a Dimensional. I will try to create a video on the steps to assemble this component in the near future.
