My white vellum butterfly bush.

This paper vellum butterfly bush I made to welcome my scrappy friends to my humble home. I'm having a scrapbooking crop party in a few weeks and I wanted to do something special for them, some thing that only a paper crafter would appreciate.

The vase I've had for ever and I keep inventing things to do with it. As a filler I hand cut music sheet paper. The branches I've used before to dangle snow flakes as part of my Christmas decoration.

All I had to do was cut vellum butterflies. All this white vellum paper was just given to me by my sweet and talented friend Ivett as if though she knew I needed them. For the smaller butterflies I used the Martha Stuart butterfly punch, that I love. For the other larger butterflies I did a template, traced it and just sat and cut. There are over 100 butterflies and I sure hope my friends like it.
