Butterfly Wings

Butterfly Hair Clips

These butterfly hair clips were created by rubber stamping on scrapbook paper with permanent ink. The "Arty" butterfly is from Limited Editions and the heart with wings is from Inkadinkado. After the designs were cut out, they were  sealed on both sides with Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage gel. This provides shine and water resistance to the paper. I altered the alligator hair clips by attaching the butterflies with double stick tape. Most of the design is unsupported by the clip and therefore flexible. When you wear them in your hair, the wings appear to be in motion.

I am entering these clips in the following challenges:
CRAFT Challenge - alter/recycle something
Crafts 4 Eternity - Recipe #21 alter something
Pattie's Creations Design Challenge - #22 anything but a card
Allsorts Challenge - things with wings
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - #60 anything goes
Fairy Tale Challengeblog - #16 anything but a card
2 Sisters Challenge - #41 anything goes

I encourage you to visit the above-mentioned sites and experience the beautiful samples that the design team members have created for inspiration.
