Personalized Butterfly!


Butterfly Window Cling


To give idea of size...



I love to craft and this is a hand made butterfly out of the demensional fabric paints. I plan on making more when I have some time off again. These are easy to make and a bunch of fun!
First you need to get some supplies together...
1. purchase an assortment of colors of the demensional paints. And one large black if you plan to do outlines.
2. wax paper
3. patterns -- those with the least amount of detail are actually the easiest and the best.
4. tape -- used sparingly.

Pick your pattern. Cover with a sheet of waxed paper. Tape wax paper to pattern sparingly. (more tape on wax paper than on pattern.) Then start "drawing" with the demensional paints onto the wax paper. Thicker is better, and carefully covering the entire surface to be colored is important. Allow to dry for 24 hours. Carefully peel the wax paper away from the dried demensional paint. If the wax paper sticks, and you have made certain the pattern is dry you can use warm water to break up the wax paper from the window cling. Apply cling to any smooth surface and enjoy!

VERY pretty!! By the way...My blog has done something funky and put my profile and links all at the bottom of my page...:( Any idea why and/or how I can get it back up to where it should be? I have looked at the source pages of yours and mine to compare and can't find anything wrong...who knows.

Hi Heather,
What a neat project! You know I love butterflies. : )

Becca--you probably have a line in a post or a comment that is too long. Often it's a long link that the text editor (or whatever) can't break apart. What happens is that it 'knocks' your sidebar down below the body of the blog where it will fit.
