Butterfly Collage

I made a card the other day for my friend's daughter and son-in-law on the birth of their baby girl. It was this card but in pink.

Recently, to celebrate the birth of a colleague's baby daughter, I gave a gift of an elephant punch collage and I enjoyed making it so much that I decided that I would work on similar lines for this new arrival.

The papers used are just scraps that I have kept in a folder and often wondered why they don't just go in the bin. 

 It's so satisfying to know that I have used every available centimetre of a sheet of paper!!! 

I printed the text on the computer in MSWord and then used a nestabilities circle die as a guide to place the butterflies. I was originally going to cut a circle with the die for this purpose then thought ...duuhh.. why?

Initially, I though that I would only have to place the outer ring of butterflies but I decided to add the smaller ones to give definition to the text.

This is so lovely and a fabulous idea. Maybe now that you've got more time on your hands you should maybe think about doing some craft/school fairs. Give it some thought. xx
