Free Flutter of Butterflies

Here is my "flutter" of free butterflies photographed in my daughter's dorm room (an earlier post shows the complete dorm room).  Apparently the free butterflies are what draws the most attention when her friends visit.

The inspiration for them came from Haven, a high end woman's clothing store in Franklin, Tennessee. We were shopping just prior to her returning to school and as always stop in to see the latest fashion. The store was decorated with butterflies made from paper however, they weren't for sale so we made our own. They were cut from a heavy black stock (not construction paper) and velum paper. Some of the butterflies were printed as line art and the velum was fed in the paper tray and then they were cut. Each was curled and folded to add dimension and they were stuck to the wall with double-sided tape (the kind that can be removed from a dorm room wall.

Fun, easy and free, as I had the paper!
