3D Butterfly Heart Picture

After making the Christening Invites last weekend and using 3D butterflies within the design, it inspired me to make this 3D butterfly heart picture.

I made this 3D picture using:

1 8×8″ deep box frame

Approx 60 card butterflies

1x brown card for backing

dye cutting butterflies
I cut the butterflies using my dye cutting machine, you can cut them by hand using a stencil, it just takes a little longer……. it literally takes 2 mins on a cutting machine 🙂

I cut the backing card to fit the box frame and used a stencil to draw a love heart onto the centre of the page.

Using double-sided tape I arranged and fixed the butterflies within the heart stencil, sticking some flat and the rest folded with one wing stuck down to create the 3D effect.

I’ve got 2 more deep box frames that I will use to create a similar effect but instead of white plain butterflies I will cut them out of old book pages and maps………. I’ll update you with these later!!
