Reverse Confetti Spring Fling Blog Hop


Welcome to Reverse Confetti's Spring Fling Blog Hop! We've created some special projects today to inspire all of your springtime crafting. There's also a chance to win a $15 gift certificate. Visit the Reverse Confetti blog for all the details! Enjoy (and good luck)!




I found these small rustic metal letters at Hobby Lobby earlier this week and decided to make a sweet little decor piece for my daughter. (I might need to keep this one for myself, though!)



Gotta love a project that's both quick and cute! I wrapped some natural twine around the "leg" of the letter, then added a stamped butterfly embellishment and a strip of patterned paper around the outside edge.


The butterfly is from Butterfly Dreams and was die-cut with the coordinating Butterfly Dreams  Confetti Cuts die set. I used my Misti to stamp the multiple colors, sponging on ink with an ink dauber and building up color impression by impression.

These are darling little decor pieces, and would make great gifts and/or package toppers. They stand up on their own, or there's a little hanging loop on the back for hanging.

Oh, I love this! Love that little butterfly about to take flight (or resting?) on the "A." I may have to go to HL and pick up a couple letters for gift ideas... I can't tell you how many times those letters have been in and out of my cart over the couple of months, but now I have a really good reason to get them! :)
