For my cousins 20th birthday I asked her would she like me to buy her a present or make one for her newly decorated bedroom, she choose for me to make something, and as her room was painted cream she had no preference of colour either. My cousin is a girly girl so I knew she'd love a girly picture for her wall. I got the idea from a gift I had bought for 2 friends last year called PixMix which is a shape made up of photos, instead I used 3D butterflies to make a heart shape.
I have so much paper in my left over basket it was fun matching colours, for each butterfly I punched 2 butterflies from the same paper (I had the punch from making my friends wedding invites), one to sit flat on the card and the second glued on top of the first along the body with the wings folded back to give a 3D effect. I tried to use interesting papers, if you look closely you'll see music notes, a bird, a butterfly, velum and pearlised cardstock.
Im so happy with how it turned out and best of all my cousin loved it.
