Butterfly bookmarks

Challenges:
butterfly/open-Flutter by Wednesday
bookmark-Tiddly Inks
cropping and chopping-Bee Crafty
grandparents day-Creative Craft World
inspired by a book-Prairie Fairy Fridays



I used background paper from Tiddly Inks, I merged a quote from Create with TLC, doubled it. Then I printed it out and cut it in half to make two bookmarks. I colored the butterflies with Spica glitter markers. I made these for my grandmother, she is an avid reader and loves butterflies. I hope she likes them.  I added some butterfly ribbon. The quote says "Just like the butterfly, you too will awaken in your own time".

Hey I wanted to stop by and thank you for your support on the Pixie Cottage blog, much appreciated. Then I was looking around and saw these bookmarks. I just love Dr Seuss and everything/anything he says, funny coming from someone is 46 years old. My daughter and i just decorated her reading book cover with Dr Seuss stickers by Jolee. She is 12, and still likes him!
