Butterfly Banner

 This is another banner from my Etsy shop.
 There are only five picture slots there, so I thought I'd put the extra views here.
 It was a sunny, breezy day when I took these pics, so some of these might be a tad overexposed or blurry.
 You can still get the idea, and they did look so charming fluttering about on this old shed.
 I began by die cutting lots of butterflies from vintage dictionary paper, kraft cardstock, and patterned paper.
 Then, I made little butterfly sandwiches, with the kraft cardstock in the middle.
 Next, I stitched them all together with silver and white threads.
 As a final touch, I added a red vintage button to the bottom to help them hang nicely.
