another quicky craft!

Modge podge... heard of it? I have used it once... but it was a while ago but i had an idea.

2010 came and went... and I had an adorable butterfly calendar for that year! I love butterflies which is why I had a calendar of pictures of them. Well i threw away the calendar, but i cut out the butterflies because i thought i would scrap book them :)

Well i had a wonderful idea! mod podge the butterflies to wood... well i didn't have wood... and i didn't want to buy wood.. partly because i don't have anything to cut wood! But i was keeping an eye for some scrap wood... then i went to the dollar store and saw these!

I figured I could use the back of these! I would have used the front but it's not a flat surface... so I put some ribbon on the front of it so i could hang it up. Just some hot glue!

then I painted the backs according to the color of the butterfly
Then i glued on the butterfly in the center and brushed on modge podge

Then i waited for it to dry

I originally just did 4 but i liked them so much that i did 2 more :)
