Hello and Happy Sunday! If you live on the east coast I say…..BUNDLE UP as we are going down into a brrrrr DEEP FREEZE! We fortunately missed a projected storm but Old Man Winter is here in FULL SWING with high winds and frigate temperatures!
You know what happens on Randall Lane when the weather is like this….I have one GRUMPY PIGGY….yep, Daisey is NOT a fan of this weather! It will pass and we can just think of Spring around the corner!
I wish you could all hear her making grunting noises with each step she takes….I swear she says…I do not want to go out…I do not want to go out!!! She does make me laugh and she does bring me joy!
I think that this little project that I have for you today will make you smile and THINK SPRING with these fun butterflies! Welcome to the 3D Thursday Project this week…a bit late but I will say that Twila Davis from Stamp A Little Longer really…really nailed it this week!
I was determined to make this myself so I can enjoy Twila’s great directions and also make a spin on it for myself! Please enjoy what Twila has worked up for us…and then I hope that you will see what I did!
I was super pleased with the end result and I do hope that you give this a try! It was very fun to put together and this bundle, Butterfly Gala is a “keeper in my simple eyes!”
If you purchase this bundle, the Butterfly Gala from me… I will send you the contains for you to put this together for yourself! This bundle includes a punch and we all know how the ease of a punch is to us when we craft….just the BEST but please make sure that you add other products to hit that $50.00 mark so you can earn this beautiful DSP for FREE as the punch from this bundle….punches the butterflies out – how wonderful is that!!!
The great thing about a project like this is that you can easily fold it down and it will fit into a regular size envelope. In my example, I did put the top butterfly up too high for it to fit into an envelope…..so a heads up…..when you are putting it together and IF you want to mail it is a regular envelope…..just make sure that you do not put it too high!
I love the sentiment that Twila did in her box…that sentiment is the best! I chose to put another piece of the DSP that I used and just adhered it on 3 sides so I could tuck in a mini note to the recipient! Really, the sky is the limit with the fun you can have!
Next, you will see more pictures of what I did with Twila’s inspiration and also the products that I used! At the very bottom of this post you will find the FREE PDF for you to print off and make one yourself! I warn you, they are addicting to make and you will quickly find many stamps that you have that you could use…..just shop that stash!
I used the sentiments that were from this great bundle as I thought that it would be a perfect fit for what I needed ! I am a huge fan of this font and I am particularly fond of when a sentiment has 2 different fonts in it – I think it adds some subtle interest to the eye!
The price point of this bundle is also stellar….just $35.00 now that makes me happy! Remember, we are in full swing of Sale-a-bration so for every $50.00 you spend, you will be able to pick a FREEBIE and YES, I would get this DSP Paper….it is just stunning!
To me, I just love black and white with a POP of color! I think that this is just so fun and the fact that I did not have to stamp any of these butterflies is a HOME-RUN in my eyes! The ease of a punch does pay off!
I will also share…..type A kicked in for me and I also added a butterfly to the back of each one so when you see the backside of the wings from the side – it will look the same, front to back!
It has been a L O N G time since I have used a 3″ X 3″ card and I thought that this would be PERFECT to tuck in the back of tis fun pop up! This is a project that will be able to stay out for anytime of the year and bring a smile to someone.
You know what my sweet John said….as I always ask him what his thoughts are once I get done creating….he said – WOW…I do not know how you did that and I said – Well honey…..I did not come up with it, I followed Twila’s amazing directions and then he smiled and then said…..could I have some to give to clients? Oh that John….he is a keeper!
Well folks, there you go! I hope that you are smiling and I hope that you give it a try! Below you can click the image and you will get your FREE directions on ow to make this fun project!
Have a great afternoon…..John and I are bundling up to go and do the barn and then it is FOOTBALL and I am excited to be inside warm….and playing with paper!!!
Don’t forget that if you purchase this bundle from me, I will send you the “goods” to put one together like I made….as after all….you already have the great instructions! You will love making this and you will be so proud of yourself…I know it as I felt the same way when I finished this sweet box!
