3D Paper Butterfly Punch Art

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

I have so many sweet nieces and girly little friends and they all have such pretty, colorful bedrooms! Over the last year I’ve made a lot of 3D paper butterfly punch art pieces in different rainbow combinations for their birthday gifts. These are so fun and easy to do! I’ll be adding directions to the DIY section of my site soon but in the meantime here are some of the wonderful photos Brittney Williams was kind enough to take for me of this 21″ x 27″ piece…

Good Year

October’s a busy month in this family with no less than 10 birthdays and 3 anniversaries, including Anthony’s and mine (six great years…where does the time go?!)

Thanks to my family and friends for another awesome birthday last weekend, your thoughtful cards mean so much to me! I love you guys…Ann Marie, your fondant cake rocked and Superbaby, I will keep my monster truck card forever and ever! I got such a good haul I just had to take pictures…here’s one of the of the (eco-friendly!) dining chairs Anthony and I got for each other, the kitty approved bedding Anthony’s family gave us and the beautifully crafted Halloween witch from my family.
