Butterfly Art

Editor's Note: This post can now be found in the snip & scribble archives.

So it's not really wedding related, exactly, but I thought I'd share anyway. After we had our last baby shower I really wanted to hold on to all the cards, but had nothing to do with them, and nowhere to put them. So I came up with a solution... with a little inspiration from this butterfly punch tutorial . I ended up punching out little butterflies from each card and came up with this piece, to hang in the nursery:

I'm thinking you could totally use this (with another craft punch) to keep a memento of all your bridal shower cards. You could even find a fun punch to use for your place cards if you got really ambitious!

that is a fantastic idea - I have been holding on to cards for ages think what the hell am I going to do with them - and it is a great project for the kids with their old birthday cards - well done! - I am going to share this with my facebook fans
