Sandra's Butterfly Birthday Hop!

Happy Saturday! Welcome to Sandra's (365 Days of Cricut) Butterfly Birthday blog hop! Wasn't Erika's shaker card just ADORABLE!!

For my butterfly themed project I made some new wall decorations for my girls' bedroom. They recently got new matching "big girl" comforters of brown and pink. (Sniff - no more princess stuff) ...




First, I wrapped a foam wreath form in thick brown yarn. I bought a flat sheet that I cut up to make velcro dust ruffles for both beds and there was enough left over that I was able to make the ruffles for the wreath. I used svg files for the butterflies and the tag is cut from Once Upon A Princess. I Stickled around the edges of the butterflies and tag for a little bling. I stamped "Butterfly Kisses" from SMS Designers Choice stamp set and used a ribbon tied in a bow for the hanger.

I hope you enjoyed my little project - I'd love to hear from you if you did or if you have any questions. :)

Be sure to visit all the stops on the hop for a chance to win a Joann's gift card or a Scrappy Moms Stamps Quirky Quotes stamp set!
