Butterfly Frame

One more yellow project here and I think I may have enough yellow in my decor for a while!  This was an easy one....the easiest of all of my yellow projects.

Pin It

I love this bright white frame!  I cut a piece of yellow fabric using my rotary cutter to fit the inside dimensions of the frame.

Using some Tacky Glue (love that stuff) I attached some yellow ribbon to the fabric and then inserted it into the frame.  I made a butterfly stencil by just tracing a butterfly shape onto some plastic and cutting it out.  Then I cut 4 butterfly shapes out some fabric tissue paper.

I crinkled em up, smoothed them back out and then sewed then together up the middle using a straight stitch.  This doesn't have to be all.
I fluffed em up and fastened it using some double-stick tape to the outside of the frame in the center of the glass for a 3-D effect.
I love it!  It's all fluttery looking....don't ya think?
I think I'm done with yellow for a little while.  I went to town today and I saw something that inspired me and I fell in love with a new color.  You'll find out which one soon enough!!

  1. You know I love your butterflys ! I have never heard of fabric tissue paper . I find it interesting . Where would I find something like that ?

  2. That is so cute! Hmmm - what colour do I think you are in love with now? Blue, maybe? ~ Maureen

  3. Danni,

    Another pretty yellow project! I love how you created the 3-D effect with the butterfly. I can't wait to see what the new favorite color will be . . .

    Have agreat rest of the weekend,
