Wow...what a weekend...that is all I got to say about that. Somehow I was able to get some crafting in, and created this cute little ornament using a couple stamps from Eureka Stamps. I just loved THIS butterfly stamp, but when I ordered it I didn't realize it was so large. Now if I had just read the size i would have been okay, but...yeah...I didn't...lol. This same image comes in two sizes though if you don't want one so large...lol. So...I decided to pull out the old Shrink paper. I stamped the butterfly, and cut it out. I remembered to punch the hole for the ribbon before "baking" Here is the before...Oh, yeah...I also colored with colored pencils before baking. A little tip...if you are going to use shrink paper, it is a good idea to sand it a little before stamping and coloring. Next, I baked it...and come out with this...As you can see it is much smaller now...lol. I added some ribbon to it so it can be used as an ornament or bookmark. Next, I attached it to the Legend of the Butterfly poem stamp. Here is a closer shot so you can see the poem a little more.
I just thought this was such a pretty poem, and would make a cute gift for someone special.
Well that is all ...thanks for stopping by!
