paper butterflies for baby

When I first started thinking about blogging I came across a lovely, DIY paper butterfly collage from The Idea Room. Check out their version here. I knew I had to try this on my own, and soon. Once the little thing called my wedding was out of the way, I clipped a few coupons for Michaels, picked up a butterfly punch, glue, and some pretty, eye popping paper, and zipped over to Ikea. I originally planned to use a standard frame, but fell in love with the extra deep Ribba shadow box instead. It worked just as I planned…that is, it showcased the butterflies’ beauty and kept their delicate, paper wings from being squished.

This particular collage is for a very special, soon to be born baby. Karl and I can’t wait to meet our new (and first!) little niece or nephew.

I’m so in love with this project, however, that I plan to make many, many more. If you’re lucky, perhaps you’ll unwrap one in the future.

There’s something about these butterflies that just seems so graceful. Totally in love.
