I love spring. The fresh, happy colors. The warm breezes. New life popping up everywhere! It's such a breath of fresh air! We are supposed to have a terrific warm weekend here in New York for Easter and I'm so excited. We get together with my husband's family and all of the cousins and their children for the Easter egg hunt each year. I was in charge of finding a pinata, so we did that today and found a cute egg pinata. It's one of my favorite holidays to spoil the girls!
I made this little card for the Jenni Bowlin blog and want to share with you how I made the little crepe paper butterflies! See the blog HERE for the tutorial and supply list. I am so loving crepe paper.
They are really easy and fun to make. I used the Jenni Bowlin Crepe Paper Ribbon for this one, but you could use any size... the larger the piece, the larger your butterfly will be. I made it the same way I made this one, except on the blue one, I didn't round the edges before fanning it out.
What do you think of the yellow ribbon on the card? Oh. MY. I can't get enough of this stuff! If you have seen Tammy Tutterow's video here, then you know what I'm talking about! I first saw this ribbon on Melissa Phillips' blog. She is the queen of shabby and all things beautiful. She is so inspiring. I had to order some seam binding and try it out. I sprayed mine with Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels in Lemon Zest, Sunshine and Candlelight. LOVE it! Thank you, Melissa, for always inspiring me and all of your readers!
Enjoy your Easter holiday with your loved ones,
