Update 3.7.13: DIY directions with free templates now available at http://www.mindileatham.com/diy-crafts-paper-butterfly-punch-art/!

Here are some more of the different paper butterfly punch pieces I’ve been making with scrapbook paper in all different colors, patterns and textures that are now for sale in my Etsy shop at http://www.MindiLeatham.etsy.com. They come in easy to hang black wood frames that I distressed (outside dimensions: 19″ x 23″). Thanks again to Brittney Williams for doing a beautiful job with the photos!

These can be made in any color combination for any room in the house. Here are two made in a gradient including yellows, greens, blues, purples, browns, gray and black:

I bent the wings up off the paper so that it looks as if these little butterflies are resting for a moment and will soon take flight. Glass is not included to enhance the 3D effect.

Here’s a close up of the rainbow one I made that included all the primary and secondary colors:

And here’s one in shades of yellow, orange and pink:

Here’s my 3D, cut paper French poodle made for a little girl who adores puppies and wanted something to match her Paris Toile bedding from www.PotteryBarnKids.com. Her name is Gigi and she is made of scrapbook paper with colored pencil shading to make her fur look as fluffy as cotton candy, watercolor paper and acrylic paint for her facial features. I glued a thin layer of cardboard between pieces to give her a little dimension…

Hello Kitty as my favorite mythological creature! She’s currently framed in my office next to her sister. She’s all hand cut scrapbook paper with foam board in between her layers to make her 3-D. I bent some of the paper to give it a rounded effect before I glued it together.

My favorite childhood character now in cut paper! Believe it or not, this is the first cut paper art I’ve made with the intention of keeping just for me. Hello Kitty and her apple is currently framed and keeping me company on the wall of my office. She’s all hand cut scrapbook paper with foam board in between her layers to make her 3-D. I bent some of the paper to give it a rounded effect before I glued it together.

Some frog sketches from this week…
