3D Butterfly Box Frame Picture

One of my very lovely and very talented customers showed me how to create these beautiful pictures - thank you Hannah! :o)

The principle is simply - but the execution of it is very fiddly!

I created mine using the lovely Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Papers - page 28 in the Spring/Summer catalogue. I love the colours in this paper, they are so bright and cheery!

I used both the Elegant Butterfly and the Bitty Butterfly punches for most of the butterflies - but I filled in the gaps using butterflies cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

The frame is from Ikea. I removed the backing board and replaced it with foam board, so the pins would go through easily.

The butterflies are pinned on to the board using Craft Pins and they are all set at different heights on the pins.

The butterflies are also all set at slightly different angles. I think the effect is really pretty :o)
