Heartfelt Butterfly


Paper Makeup Stamps M4TW16 - Treat Bag
Flutter By Wednesday #97 - Butterfly, Fairy or Angel with Hearts

Here is a simple treat bag that I made. I have a small paper bag cut down to a 3-inch height to fit in between two Top Note die cuts. I've had this idea to make a butterfly using one of the heart images from Paper Makeup's Hugs and Kisses set. Then today I saw the Flutter By Wednesday challenge was to use hearts and I knew I could wait no longer! {grin} I love it when an idea and a challenge come together like that!

So, after stamping the heart twice on shimmery paper for the wings, I added brown pearls for the body and drew antennae with a spica pen before cutting it out and popping it up on the bag. The saying is from Paper Makeup's Everyday Thanks set and I think it just matches my butterfly so perfectly.
