Team Princess ~ Strawberry Shortcake Butterfly

Team Princess is up this week with a cute butterfly card.

This butterfly is made from the Strawberry Shortcake file and can be found under vintage TV shows or by following this link,

The key to this week’s project was to create a card with this butterfly, however, the card must have dimensions included.

This is what I decided to do with the butterfly file.  I always like to add my own twist to any paper piecing project that I do, and this file was no different.   I knew I wanted my butterfly to be pink and green, so I dug through my scrap stack until I found the two colors that I wanted.  I cut four pieces for the wings and on for each of the body parts.  I then carefully inked the edges of all of my peices, and ran the wings through the Cuddle Bug to add the polka-dot patterns to add a pattern to her wings.  I also like to give my paper piecings their own faces, so I used parts of the file and then add my own touch. I did not like the flower for her nose, so I simply used my hole punch and punched out a dot.  Gel pens completed the smile for the butterfly.  I then completed the butterfly by adding flowers on the wings and a cute little bow on the top of her head.

I did not want the little butterfly to be all alone on the front of the card, so I added a Toad Stool to keep her company!

Please take time to visit all of team princess projects this week by going to each blog listed below. They each have their own take on the project.

Here are the links to my sister’s blogs.
