Feb Banana Frog Blog Hop

So welcome to my first blog hop as a member of the bananafrog DT! The theme this month is hearts and seeing as Valentines day has been and gone I thought I'd share an idea for something different to do with your heart stamps. Here goes.....

Choose a medium sized button and draw around it on a scrap of card, this won't be seen so it doesn't matter what you use. Cut it out and put to one side, you'll need this later.
Stamp a pair of hearts onto a paper of your choice. I used the heart stamp from the Charming Prince set. Cut them out.
Using some thin wire, thread through the button and twist to create antennae.
Using the circle of card you cut at the beginning, attach the two hearts using a glue dot, then use another glue dot to attach the button on top to make a cute little butterfly. These can then be used as an embellishment on any number of different projects.
I used mine on this tag, using the ends of wire to give the effect of the butterfly fluttering around.
Now head over to my lovely friend and fellow DT newbie Anne's blog.

Funky butterflies - the button in the middle makes such a difference - never would have thought of that!
