Magazine butterfly shadowboxes
Garage sales continue to be the pits for me. This past weekend all I picked up was a free pile of Elle Decor magazines.
Inside one of the magazines was an old Target ad with butterflies on it. I knew right away they were perfect for this project , which I have been in love with since January.
Simply cut out glossy butterflies, bend the wings up and stick them in a shadowbox.
Dave and I both love this thing. It really is hard to tell the butterflies aren't real.
Of course, it was also incredibly hard for me to get a decent photograph. Jasna's photos are gorgeous!
I am already tearing out butterflies for another one!
(The background paper is Amy Butler, the shadowbox was a clearance deal from Target a few years ago I knew I would eventually find a use for. Total cost? $0, everything was kicking around the house. Wooohooo.)
P.S. Take a minute and really soak up her photostream . I think it is fantastic. I want to just move right into her beautiful photos.right.now. :-)
