5. create butterfly: trace butterfly template onto paper twice. trace again in smaller size. using mod podge and brush, glue pieces together creating two butterflies (one large & one small). using sewing machine, stitch two pieces together down the center leaving threads longer to create antennae. distress with ink and sand to liking.
when working on this banner, the papers reminded me of vintage aprons so i decided to clothes pin the flowers to white twine to create a laundry line effect. i hung it in my dining room window, hence the night time picture so you can see the details. please ignore the sticky little finger prints. i just love how spring-y it turned out!
