Sheet Music Butterflies...

Feathering My Nest has moved!... come check all of this out over at

Ooo... just as I named this post I thought... I should cut out some life sized butterflies from the sheet music... hmm...

In the meantime check out these minitures...

All you need is a small butterfly hole punch and some sticky raised foam dots...

Punch out your shapes... place them as you like... make a grid on a sheet of paper and have the horizontal and vertical lines cross where the butterflies are sitting in your layout...

Then take that sheet of grid paper that you made and place your butterflies on it to check that you've gotten the grid correct and you like how everything lines up... then place that  grid paper over whatever you are going to stick the butterflies onto... with a stickpin poke holes through the grid paper into the paper underneath... this will show you where to place your sticky foam dots that you stick the butterflies onto without you having to make on that paper...  stick on your dots and then your butterflies... pop that into the frame and BAM!.. you're done...

The lighting last evening wasn't the greatest... I got a few shots in the early morning sunshine to add:
