It’s going to be an amazing 6 days of Spring!!!
I  am so excited to share my first project with you!
Every time I walk  through the craft store,I am always attracted to those packs of butterflies in the floral aisle.
Many time I’ll buy them not really knowing what to use them for, but there is just something about them that I love.
I thought some magnets would be cute and I know my girls would love them. With a house full of estrogen,we are all things glitter and sparkles around here. Unless they are fighting; then it’s blood, hair-pulling, glitter and sparkles.
 I grabbed some round magnets, and I also had some wood craft disks on hand that I painted black. I was afraid if I glued the butterflies right to the magnets, they would get de-winged pretty quick.
 I first hot-glued the disk to the magnet and once that cooled, I flipped it over and glued the butterfly to the front.
 They were pretty just sitting on the vintage cutting board I use for my hot glue gun.
 Once they were cool, I put them on my fridge around some of the kids artwork.
 Butterflies will make anything look good. Even good old Bessie (our fridge.)
 It’s a fun way to bring some sweet artwork to life. They have been flying all over the fridge, adorning A+ papers,lunch tickets, and spelling lists.
We’ve only had 1 de-winging and luckily there was no blood or hair-pulling involved that time.

    These are so cute! I just saw some butterflies like this at a flower shop but couldn’t figure out what I would do with them. Kicking myself now :) I’ll have to go back and pick them up. So excited to be working with you this week, can’t wait to see your other fun ideas!
