Ribbon Butterfly

Filed under: Projects — April 26, 2007 @ 9:48 am

I think that these butterflies made with the SU Ribbon Originals were first introduced at an SU Regional training seminar last fall.  Since the Sweet Shop ribbons are a perfect match for the new Palette o Prints designer paper, this was a perfect time to give one a try!


1.  Cut 2 inch pieces of 2 of the ribbons for wings and a 5 inch piece for the body.

2. Make each wing by picking up a glue dot in the center of the ribbon while scrunching it together.

3. Tie a knot around the body, placing the knot at the top. 

4.  Trim ribbons if needed.

And here is the final card.  Stamp set: Wonderful Words.
