Oh-So-Sweet DIY Butterfly Embellishments Tutorial

Love using butterflies on your projects?  Then we've got the perfect tutorial for you today!

Oh-So-Sweet Butterflies in pink and blue

Tracey Sabella made these super sweet and sparkly butterflies with our January Adore Kit Creativity Add On.  The add on included these adorable Theo Butterfly dies by Poppystamps. She also used mediums that were in the Color and Elements Add Ons to embellish them.

Before I share the video, I just thought I'd show you how she used these beauties. She created both of these cards with the main kit and add ons:


Aren't they just gorgeous?!

And on to the tutorial, so you can see how she created the butterflies:



The Creativity Add On also included Poppystamps' Cheviot Butterfly Die, which is a solid die without the lacy cutouts.  Between the two, your butterfly creating possibilities are endless, not only can you use them with cardstock as Tracey did, you can also match your project perfectly by using them with patterned papers, vellum, or even acetate.  

Here are a few close up photos of the cards Tracey made with the kit and her beautiful butterflies:





I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial, and I hope we've inspired you to get out those craft supplies and make yourself some gorgeous embellishments!
