craft : butterfly garlands
congratulations to Joyce who is the winner of our giveaway! thank you all for sharing your summer/winter highlights with us. it was interesting to read how just about all of you enjoyed spending time with your families and we're no different. we also learned about some nice trips people took, too. good to know since we're such terrible trip planners.
after watching the summertime swing video from coldplay i mentioned last week, i made these garlands. i just couldn't take it anymore! they're always featuring butterflies and release paper butterfly confetti during their concerts, which must be so cool!
except for the butterfly craft punch i picked up at michael's with a coupon, i figured i could make my own butterflies using things i already owned. i used vintage wallpaper, scrapbook paper, brown paper bags and doilies for petticoats (inner wings). then, i strung some together using waxed or baker's twine and glue. i'm not quite done with them and sure there will be a few extras for a future giveaway. thanks again for visiting and spending some of your time with us, everyone!
note : after some searching, i found the waxed twine at the caning shop.
ps you can download a free live album from coldplay on their site. it's really good. i would like to hear more songs like no.7. i write about them, a lot. they should send me some butterflies ;)!
