Die Cut Butterfly Flower Picks

Butterfly Flower Pick made with Stampin'UP! dies.
I made these butterfly flower picks for my daughter's baby shower.  The flowers were from our garden, gladiolus with some feathery asparagus plumes and a couple of grass stalk flower heads. Each vase got 2 butterfly flower picks.

With a little help from mom, the shower was given by the sisters - daughter and son-in law each have 2 sisters. In the background you can see 2 loaves of banana bread and 1 loaf of chocolate zucchini bread. And in the front is my cup of coffee, because caffeine is an essential vitamin in my house.

By the way, the saying is a cross stitch that was done by my husband's Aunt Nan and it is one of my favorite sayings.  It says:

"A lovely friend once gave to me
A most delightful recipe.
Each time its used I feel I spend
A precious moment with my friend." 

For me that saying is as gorgeous as the flowers!

Supplies to make the Butterfly Flower PicksAnd the flowers were gorgeous. But the sparkly butterfly flower picks made them super gorgeous!  Do you have a do-it-yourself event coming up?  Ask me how you can use Stampin'UP! product for invitations and decorations.

They were so easy to make.  The paper was embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (#127751) and then cut with the Beautiful Butterfly BigZ die (#114507). I hot glue gunned the butterflies together and pierced a hole for the Antique Brad (#117273).  Then the whole thing was hot glued to a wooden shish-kaboob skewer.

Die Cut Butterfly Flower PickWould you like to try this project yourself? You can find all the products (except the hot glue gun and the wooden shish-kaboob skewers) in my on-line store.  It was super easy to make, feel free to contact me with any questions.

Happy Stamping
