Flight of the Butterfly votive
These are so cute I just had to have a go!!
My little girl had some battery operated tealights for Christmas and as soon as the wrapping paper came off I knew what I was going to do with them..........
The main body is Pale Plum cardstock which I scalloped around one edge. I then used the Butterfly punch for the 'windows' and added vellum cardstock to the backs. The tiny flower and spotty Bashful Blue butterfly is from Flight of the Butterfly stamp set. I ran some Whisper White through my Big Shot with a dotty embossing folder, then used the Butterfly punch to make two larger butterflies. A thin strip of Mellow Moss was fringed and stuck around the base to make 'grass'. My favourite white gell pen was used to add highlights here and there.
(Of course, I don't recommend you use a real tealight inside!)
