So I decided to give it a try:
I printed out a butterfly pattern on my two sided paper (Amy Butler K&Co).
I cut out the pattern inside the lines so they would now show on the final product. Using a boning tool, I folded up the wings to give it a 3-D look.
Then I flipped my butterfly over and applied double sided tape.
I found the perfect spot on the wall in my sweet pea's room and applied my beautiful swallowtail butterfly!
Here is what I did:
2-sided scrap bookpaper (good quality thick paper)
double sided tape
1) Choose coordinating scrapbook papers to match your room decor.
2) Print out the pattern. ***This pattern is set to print on 12x12 scrapbook paper so make sure to check the box "scale to fit" to your paper size if you are using 8.5x11 letter sized paper.
3) Cut out your butterflies right inside the lines so they do not show in final product.
4) Using a boning tool, gently fold up the two sides of the wings where they meet the body of the butterfly. This gives the 3-D appearance you are going for. It looks like the butterfly just landed on your wall.
5) Remove one side of double stick tape and apply to back of body of your butterfly.
6) Determine spot on your wall and peel and stick your butterfly right on.
They look really cute in a little cluster. You can reduce the print size of your image in print set-up area to make 3 different sizes like PB if you wish.
~ Enjoy :)
