I am gona share with guys a very good money saver trick as well as a quick substitute.
Todays trick and tip will be on butterflies.
I love butterflies but since I am new to what I call manual art
I don't always have the supplies or the money
or worst yet my local craft store doesn't have what I need.
Tip #1 STICKERS
and found these really pretty sparkly embossed butterfly stickers.
I Payed 2.06$ but that wasn't all I got theses stickers come on a clear packaging sheet.
There in the clearing theres the butterfly
etched into the plastic.
Thats right under all these stickers are the etched
copies now i figured i could do 2 things with them
1- I can cut them out and have clear butterflies to use
as some sort of embellishment.
2- With a little work and time I have a whole new set of butterfly stencils.
At your local dollar store *cheaper*
or your craft supply stores.
Look for foam critters,shapes ect...
Here's the few tricks I found using theses.
1-you can trace them and then cut them and then doctorate them.
2-use them as they are and make them even more pretty *they aren't very pretty*
3- paint,color or ink them to stamp them and then cut them out.
4- this is the moment I have been waiting to share.
The ones with sticker backs already have a punched out layer of paper
you can use that layer as punched out image and decorate it as you would
But for you who are more experience and advance and talented
just think of what you could do if i was able to make theses?
I hope this tip was helpful God Bless.
