Butterfly punch strikes again.

I've seen a few different versions of notecards using a butterfly punch, and here is my take on it. My photos turned out so dark (boo!), but hopefully you can see my stitching...


I have a package of pre-cut cards with envelopes that I used ~ sewed a line with a loop in the middle and up through the center of the butterfly. I like how they turned out and will be making more, for sure.

Deb - these are beautiful! They should DEFINITELY go in the shop!
I can't wait to see what you come up with on the bag - very exciting!
And on the camera - I'm sending you an e-mail...
Take care,
Stephanie

Very pretty! I've been holding out on buying a butterfly punch but I think I'm going to have to give in and get one

Love them! You did it again! I used my punch on the card and photo album I made this week and it really dressed them up! xo

I agree with Stephanie - a couple of sets of these would go well in your shop!
They are really very pretty - and so simple!
I must get a butterfly punch - online I think, as none of the local shops seem to have them!

Adorable! And speaking of things going in the shop, you should consider putting those felt birdies in the shop! I would definitely by one... or two or five - lol :)

Deb said...

You ladies are so kind. :o)

I do plan to put a few of these cards in my Etsy shop as well as some of my little felt birds. I actually uploaded the little white bird this morning...need to take a few more photos before I can load the others. When I have them uploaded I'll create a special blog post to let you know.

These are so beautiful, Deb. I love the look of paper being sewed. I actually purchased a hand held sewing machine months ago but still haven't used it yet. I really need to get on the ball and just do it!

Can't wait to see you next month! :)
