Step-by-Step Wednesday -- Butterflies

The team is still celebrating and hoping for spring with our challenge this week at Cuttin' and Stampin'. We have used Teresa Collins "Daily Stories" paper and Paper Smooches "Flap Happy" stamp set.  Make sure you enter your creation with a butterfly into our challenge and also remember to visit the Cuttin' and Stampin' store HERE to get all your spring scrapping supplies.

I'm here with this week's Step-by-Step installation and I absolutely LOVE {love} love this paper and stamp set!  I actually had inquired about it a few weeks before I found out it was the one we were featuring!!  I was super excited to get to play with it!!  This paper is absolutely gorgeous too!!  I need to get some more for myself!

For this week's step-by-step I will show how to get the charm on the bow.  First off, the card I made was done so using a sketch I had pinned some time long ago that I couldn't get a link to it, but had to take a pic of my computer screen! LOL

I modified it to fit on a card.  The sentiment block was hand drawn and fussy cut until it looked right.  Just play with it, use a pencil until it's right.  That's what I did......erased alot!!  It's not perfect, but it doesn't need to be! =D

Then I inked the edge with my handy dandy tool, that I am not exactly sure where I got it, but I think it was originally to be used for chalks.  I added a new pom-pom and dabbed it in the distress ink.  It works great to get in the nooks and crannies that a normal hard pad wouldn't be able to get to.

Then I assembled the card.....when it came time for the bow, I loosely tied it in order to shimmy the first jump ring into place.  Jump rings can be purchased at any craft store (I'm pretty sure).  I got mine in the jewelry section and there was about a bazillion in there, so I won't need some for a little while.

Open up the ring, slide it in the ribbon loop.  Open up another ring, slide it on the charm, then onto the other ring already on the ribbon.

Pull the ribbon tight and there you have it!

Thanks for visiting us here and enjoy the rest of your week!
