one of the girls here at the office told me about this awesome DIY project that she’s going to try, and i think i might have to try it as well! it is so simple and there are so many fun things you can do with it…
what you need:
1. some pretty paper – this would be a great way to reuse your old free people catalogs!
2. punches in whatever shape or size you want – i love the idea of using varying sizes.
3. some zots (clear adhesive dots) and 3d-dots (sticky foam cubes) to add some dimension by placing the butterflies at varying heights, like this:
4. a picture frame with 3d mat board
once you have your paper picked out, start punching! lay out the shapes on a piece of paper as you punch, in whatever pattern you feel like. then you’re just going to attach them using the zots and 3d dots, placing the shapes at varying heights.
lollychops has a really great step-by-step tutorial if you need more direction:
