Isn’t this cheerful?! I made this Footprint Butterfly design for our Handprint & Footprint Calendar. I made it for March’s design….. I had it half finished for weeks, but we have been busy moving and now are moving again a little less than a month later. Late is still better than never, right? 🙂
I cut a smaller square of a light colored paper and glued it to a bright, cheerful scrapbook paper that reminded me of spring. I made the blue footprints on a separate piece of paper (due to the fact we usually have mess-ups…. see what we did with the Oops! Footprints in a previous post). Next, I painted glue onto the page in the shape of a butterfly body, then sprinkled glitter over it. I cut the blue footprint out and glued one on each side of the butterfly body. I also had a butterfly scrapbook charm that I used on this page. I placed tiny beads on wire along with the charm and then shaped it into a wavy line. Lastly, I poked a hole with a pen in order to get the wire through and then twisted it (on the backside) to hold it in place.
