Cork Butterflies

Thursday, July 9, 2009

Hello! I was just reading a post on Kristina Werner's blog about using items in your craft stash (or as Kristina calls it "craft crap"). I am guilty of buying things and not using them or not knowing what to do with them. Well, awhile back I saw this card on Kristina Werner's site where she used cork on her card. I rushed out the next day to get some and guess what? I played with it a bit, but never used it on a card. So today is the day!!!

The cork sheets I used are super thin you can use punches on them. The butterflies are punched and I used a scallop edge punch on the bottom (hard to see because of the shadows). I was able to get the butterflies to look 3D by gluing it to another butterfly punch from card stock and then bending in the center.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

What a GREAT idea! I think I have some cork at home, too. Never was really sure how to use it, but you've given me a new use for it, thanks!
