How to Make Twirly Butterfly Cards for Springcomments (12) April 9th, 2013
Break out of the one-dimensional with this twirling butterfly card made with bright cardstock and patterned papers.
This card would be the perfect companion to a handmade wedding gift or just a sweet way to say happy spring to someone you love!
What you'll need (makes one card):
- One 8-1/2-inch x 11-inch sheet of cardstock
- Scraps of decorative paper or wallpaper
- Scraps of cardstock in colors that contrast with the sheet of paper
- Binder clips
- Decorative edge scissors
- X-Acto knife, cutting mat, and ruler
- Glue stick
- One A2 envelope
1. Fold the cardstock in half lengthwise, and press the crease evenly with the side of a ruler. Cut the card in half with the X-Acto knife to make two 4-1/4-inch x 5-1/2-inch cards.
2. Cut a 3-3/4-inch x 5-inch piece of decorative paper with decorative scissors such as a scallop or zizag. Center the decorative paper on the front of the card and binder-clip it to only the front of the card. Trace a circle on the top center of the decorative paper, and cut through the decorative paper and the front of the card with an X-Acto knife.
3. Separate the decorative paper from the front of the card.
