To Love & Cherish: Rolled Butterfly Tutorial

The very talented Samantha Hauzer created this darling tutorial to teach all of us how she created these fun rolled butterflies on her "Beautiful" layout with the To Love & Cherish layout. 

Imagine how fun these butterflies would be on bridal shower invitations or wedding album decorations. Every June I think of weddings and the To Love & Cherish Collection is the perfect paper line for any special event!

Butterfly Tutorial 1. Cut a piece of paper into a long triangle shape, about 1 inch wide (doesnt really matter how long, but the longer the piece of paper, the fatter it will be)  You can make the paper wider if you want a longer body for your butterfly.

2. Roll the paper up tightly, starting from the wider end. Once it is all rolled up, glue the thin end down to hold it all together.
 3.  To make the wings of the butterfly, cut out one petal so you are left with just the 4 petals in a wing shape.
 4. Glue the body onto the wings.
 5. Add antennae cut from paper, and beads or bling to make a trail, so it looks like it is flying off your page.
