Sleeping Cat turned Butterfly
I found this frame at my local thrift store and thought it would make for a cute project. The original picture was of a sleeping kitty. I have nothing against sleeping cats, but I didn't think it would make for a cute decor piece in a little girls room. I do, however, think that some butterflies are an essential part of little girl decor.
I first took the backing off (it was that brown paper that is glued to the frame) and then removed the "painted" image of the cat. I just covered it with some super cute scrapbook paper.
Then I took my MS butterfly punch and punched several butterflies in varying paper that coordinated. I glued just the bodies down so that the wings to be raised to give it a 3-D look. I just eyeballed my spacing...
I just love the way it turned out, and it goes perfectly in my daughters room.
