How to do it

Part 1

Step 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."

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 4

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

Step 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. 

Step 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.
