Bunch of Butterflies

I took on a big project this month. I have seen some of these before and thought it would look perfect in my darling girl's room (girl stuff is so much fun!). I wanted to make each butterfly different and use a lot of different accessories and I think that is what did it. I think it actually took me a couple of hours (of course while taking care of the fam too :) The colors I used were Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and the retired Wild Wasabi because it matches her bedding perfectly. :)

Sorry the pictures are hazy, the light that was coming in the window messed it up.
I didn't realize until I took the picture that my 2 favorite butterflies were right next to each other. I love the ribbon butterfly, (I made another one for a card a while ago you can see it here) and the chocolate one beneath it is my other favorite one, I embossed it with the manhattan flower embossing folder after I cut it out.
I covered this butterfly with the green bead duo. My boys thought this one was really cool, it is heavy but it sparkles.
Here is a little better view of the room, I put it close to the crib so she can look at it but far enough away that she can't touch it :)

I used a lot of accessories to make this so if you have any questions to what I used just let me know!

Now all I need to figure out is what vinyl I am going to put above her crib. I was planning on getting the chandeleir but now the new catalog is here one of the images in it might work perfectly. . . Any suggestions?


  1. This is super cute! I love all the different butterflies. :) All the different accessories you used are so fun, I definitely wane to make one for Mikelle's room. :)
    Her bedding is super cute also...where did you find it at? :)
