I decided to decorate a gift bag for my project. I used my Gypsy (of course)! I found "It's Your Day" from Celebrations and sized it to 3.63w x 5.00h. I found the butterflies from Hannah Montana. I cut out one for the bag in the shadow mode and both sets for the gift tag. The bag butterfly is 3.38w x 2.53h. The tag butterfly is 2.25 inches tall (each piece is a different width, but the height is the same and they layer nice).
Here is my screen shot. Notice the bigger butterfly is rotated. I did that on the mat to mimic what I wanted on the bag. That helped me determine the size of the butterfly and words I needed.
I coverd a white paper bag from Michaels with this pretty purple butterfly paper while my images were cutting out.
Then I took my big butterfly and these ART C beads and mini balls (found at Michaels on clearance right now) and some Glossy Accents and created my beaded butterfly.
This is how it looks when wet.
While my butterfly was drying, I assembled my ribbon bow.
I added some purple stickles to the words ~ every girl needs a little sparkle!
And put it all together!
Here is the butterfly dry.
The stickles dry.
And here is the tag. I cut off the yellow antenae and only glued the center of the butterfly down. I bent up the wings. You can write on the back of the purple butterfly.
Here is my completed bag! I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!! I have a little blog candy for you.
