I go to a regular crop run by Louise.  Every now and then she runs an all day crop, where she gives away all sorts of goodies.  At the last one I won myself a 12"x12" deep picture frame.  As we had just started to redecorate our bedroom I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  I had seen a picture in the ideas gallery at Hobbycraft and thought it a really pretty but simple idea.  Now the picture frame I had was an untreated pine frame which really didn't go in our new bedroom, but we had plenty of paint left over from our feature wall, so this was used to paint the frame to fit into our colour scheme.  I then spent an evening punching and gluing little butterflys.
Sorry about the angle but I kept getting a reflection from the window in the glass.  And here is a close up:

We are quite happy from the result and it didn't actually cost me a penny as I was given the frame, used paper scraps from my scrapbooking and paint from our bedroom wall! - Bargin ;)


  1. Sally, glad you put the frame to good looks fantastic!! It must have taken you hours to glue all them down!!
