Butterfly hop - hosted by Lorby's World

Thank you for fluttering by today and seeing all the butterflies we have in this hop. These crafters have performed butterfly magic again with their creations and I hope you enjoy looking at the beauty of these creations.

Jearise from is our hostess today and she has a butterfly filled gift for one lucky visitor today so please make sure you begin at her blog to find out how to enter the drawing.

Butterflies inspire and delight us, they make us stop in our tracks and gaze in wonder. This hop is dedicated to them and to the joy they bring. I decided to make an album. I think it is more and I haven't decked out the inside... yet. It is a 6 by 6 album reminiscent of a Smash album, since it's larger than a mini, made from 1/4 of a 12" frozen pizza box. I covered it with some wallpaper from a sample book and then cut 12 by 12 double sided sheets from the K&Company Roam paper pad for the inside pages. The front is decked out with two handmade fabric flowers (with button centers), a handmade stick pin, a butterfly cut from an svg I found at Bird's Cards (but I used some yarn and a bead instead of the provided body cut), and a piece of ribbon. To cover some of the glue that wasn't hidden by the pages I made a bookmark. I took some ribbon with small eyelets along the center and threaded twine through it. On the end, I looped the twine and threaded a butterfly charm onto it before gluing it onto the back of the lace. I also glued a line of twine below the lace since I didn't glue the lace quite far enough down.

Thank you so much for joining us today and please flutter on to the talented Ashley.
