I love flipping through magazines like Better Homes & Gardens and I drool over the beautiful wares you can buy at stores like Pottery Barn, but in these economic times, I don't want to spend money on things our family doesn't need. And because I'm a crafty sort, I often wonder if I can make similar accents for less?
Absolutely! These butterfly shadowboxes were so simple to make, my husband could have done them! Well, maybe not. :) But you could! All you need is a couple shadowboxes from Target or your local craft store. Anything you want at Target will go on sale if you wait a couple weeks or craft stores like Michael's and A.C. Moore always have those weekly 40% off coupons. Anyway, once you get your shadowboxes head over to your local scrapbook store and buy a sheet of die cut butterfly card stock from K & Company. I think it cost $1.50 a sheet for 25 butterflies. Then pick out the butterflies you like the best, punch them out, fold the wings up a little, place a small pop dot in the center and stick it to the inside of your shadowbox! That's it! Yep, it's that easy! And look at the results!
