materials

  • 12-by-12-inch glitter cardstock in orange, red, and light yellow (1 sheet each)

  • 12-by-12-inch patterned cardstock (3 sheets)

  • Wooden drink stirrers

  • Hot glue gun and sticks

steps

  1. Design and cut butterflies: Follow the project link to Design Space®. If you want to alter the project, click "Customize," then use the tools in the Edit panel to make changes. Click "Continue," or "Make It."

  2. Place the first piece of cardstock onto the StandardGrip mat. Follow the prompts to load the machine. Set SmartSet Dial to "Cardstock." Load Fine-Point Blade in Clamp B. Load Mat and press the Load/Unload button.

  3. Press the flashing "Go" button. Unload the mat. Peel away the negative material, then if needed, use the spatula from the Basic Tool Set to lift the cut butterflies.

  4. Continue Step 3 by loading the cutting mat with each new sheet of cardstock, then into the machine as prompted. 

  5. Assemble: Remove the butterflies from the sheets. Apply hot glue to the back of a glitter butterfly cut-out, and adhere the top of a drink stirrer. Repeat for other two glitter butterfly cut-outs. 

  6. Apply hot glue to the front of a patterned butterfly cut-out, and adhere onto the drink stirrer so it's directly behind the glittered butterfly. Gently bend the wings to create dimension.
