map page specimen art tutorial

Sunday, 22 January 2012

to make this you need
map pages 
something to cut the butterflies with, i used a silhouette machine
glue dots
box frame.

 first cut out butterfly shapes. i did this with the silhouette machine, but you could use a butterfly shaped punch.
 then fold all the butterflies in half.
 then open them back up again, and add glue on to the crease i used glue dots. and place them onto a plain piece of card that fits the frame in equal spacing.

 then put it into the box frame and your done.
