It's Monday again! Hope it's a happy one blog readers! The Design Team has been having a fun time creating with one of Cheery Lynn Designs most popular type of die...the butterflies! Oh yeah! We were challenged to think of some out of the box ways to use these dies and I'm sure you will find some inspiration in each and every project posted this week.
I created a set of magnets using the Exotic Butterfly Large #1, Exotic Butterfly Large #2, and Exotic Butterfly Large #3. I die cut each of the butterflies from a thin piece of chipboard (cereal boxes would work great for this) and 2 pieces of Basic Grey patterned paper. I adhered the patterned die cuts to the front and back of the chipboard die cut using mod podge. Once dried, I added magnets to the back and pearls to the front. These were so super easy to create... I see another batch coming soon!
Here are close-ups of each butterfly magnet:
Cheery Lynn Designs has a bunch of brand new butterflies dies in store in different sizes, but there's also an oldie but goodie in the store!! The Dimensional Butterfly Bundles are still some of my favorite dies.
I die cut a few from Lily Bee papers and used them to embellish this birdcage. I also used the largest die from the Classic Circles Nesting Die set to die cut a circle to line the bottom of the cage.
As you can see here, the amount of of dimension you get with these dies is just remarkable!
Stay tuned throughout the rest of the week to see what the rest of the DT creates!!
