One of my favorite blogs is Whatever. If you haven't visited Meg's blog, you totally should! When she posted her butterfly project, I knew it was something I wanted to try one day. And I knew Layla would love it! She is quite the crafty girl herself. Always drawing or trying to make something. So I dug out some old canvases I was saving. As you can see they were previously used!
I painted them white (took several coats!) then Layla chose what color she wanted to use & got busy. I decided I'd make one for Morgan, I kept hers white.
Sorry for the quality of the photos, it's usually in the evening when we craft.
After our papers were dry, I got busy punching out butterflies. Lots of butterflies!
And then we started arranging them. I tried a glue pen so she could do it herself, but it wasn't drying fast enough, so I got out the hot glue gun. I don't have a low-temp one, so I helped her out with the gluing.
And here they are! Morgan's (the one I made) is the white one, and Layla's is the blue one.
