Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #456

Hello friends! 

This week I'm playing with the Smitten Paper Pack from Close to My Heart! I love how cute the colors all work together. The happy little bee from the coordinating stamp set just makes me smile - and I think we all need more things to smile about these days!



I've been playing along with the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for quite a long time now. I love how sketches can give you an awesome jumping off point - no matter what paper pack you are using.  Here is this week's sketch:

Butterfly Mobile with Rinea Foiled Paper


Hello friends!

Two blog posts in April? What??? Hahah - yep, still just getting into the swing of things! Here with go with another fun Rinea Foiled Paper Project! It’s a beautiful butterfly mobile!





I realized after making it how difficult it was going to be to photograph! 😂 
Here are the products you will need for this project:
Butterfly Punch
Clear Thread or fishing line
Hand sewing needle
Hot Glue
Small wreath form
Assorted greenery and flowers
Ribbon
Seed Beads

Step 1:
Punch out a ton of butterflies!




Step 2:
Using your sewing needle and clear thread, attach two seed beads to the bottom of a piece of thread and tie a double knot. Add your butterflies to the line and knot each butterfly as you go.  Create 4 strands of various lengths and attach to your wreath form.

Step 3:
Add your greenery and flowers to the wreath form using hot glue.




Step 4:
Use two lengths of ribbon and attach at 4 opposite points of the wreath to create your hanger. I hot glued them, then tie a knot at the top, creating a loop to hang




Step 5: (optional)
Using hot glue, add a second butterfly to random pieces to give a 3D look! Hang your mobile and enjoy!
