The butterfly was on clearance at Hobby Lobby a while back and I thought this would be a perfect project to add Riena Foil and give it a whole new look.

This is a very easy project that can be done in about an hour or less. You could even get elaborate and cut all kinds of shapes for the wings.

I decided to keep this pretty simple and only used three colors. Mainly because these were the three that went together that I had in my stash. lol Sometimes you just make do with what you have and it usually turns out really cool!

This would make a great housewarming gift. Just find out what the color scheme is for their home and make the butterfly to match. Or while you are out shopping look at other metal shapes and see if they could be turned into a project like this.

To me, this butterfly reminds me of a stained glass piece. The bright colors are so beautiful and cheery. Have fun finding an object and then selecting the colors. Make sure you order a couple of the multi packs so that you have at least two sheets of each color to play with for your project.

St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin

Seeing really cool Loaded envelopes on the web recently I decided I should make one. So Here is my St Patricks Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin.

St Patrick's Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin

Here are some of the supplies used in the St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin:
Rinea Foil – Gold
Brutus Monroe Jurassic Ink
Large Shamrock Cut on Silhouette Cameo 3
Cricut Explore Air – on Amazon
Cricut Cuts: Circle – Basic Shapes, Flower – Home Decor, Bottom of ribbon from 1st Place Ribbon – Locker Talk. Shamrock was an image I drew the Shamrock and used the Cricut software to convert it to a cut file.
Green card stock – On Amazon
Dymo Label maker with Black Label
Xyron – on Amazon
Ranger Blending Tool – on Amazon
Punch Bunch Flower Punch
McGill Stylus – on Amazon
Fun Foam – on Amazon
Aleene’s Tacky White Glue

Cut the Shamrock Envelope with the Silhouette. For this project, I cut one with the hearts cut out in the front and cut a second Shamrock for the back. Use the Brutus Monroe Jurassic Ink and a Tim Holtz Blending tool to add color around the edges.

Glue the bottom half of the Shamrock but not up into the center just around the lower half with white glue. Don’t use tape, if you do your items will stick to the tape.

Tie a bow with green seam binding. Glue in the center of the shamrock to represent a stem.

Add St Patrick’s Day Altered Paperclips to either side of the St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope.

Pin St Patrick’s Day Lady ATC to the front of the St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope.

Fill the inside of the Shamrock Envelope with Calico Collage St Patrick’s images. Some of the images were mounted on Silhouette Lace Tags and scraps of paper.

Extra Shamrocks were placed inside a green envelope.

Cut a scrap piece of paper, place pin back on paper and glue with Aleene’s Tacky White Glue, add more glue and adhere to back of the ribbon.

To form the flower, from the Gold Rinea Foil punch with the Punch Bunch Flower Punch. Place the flower on the fun foam and use the McGill Stylus to shape into a cup.
