A really close friend of mine just had a baby! She painted the room pink with butterflies so this is what I made for her to match the baby’s room.
Ingredients: 8×11 canvas from Michaels, acrylic paints, brushes, cricut, paper, spray adhesive, glitter, glossy accents, butterfly punch, xyron
Using the storybook cartridge, I cut out these pieces, along with the letters for “Olivia” (baby’s name!)
I used the Xyron to adhere the layers of the letters together and then to the canvas. Xyrons are GREAT for all the small stuff you cut out on the cricut!
I used this vintage style punch by Martha Stewart to punch out hearts for the butterflies.
and adhered them together like this (leaving a little space at the bottom to flatten out again like a brad and glue down.
Once dry, I sprayed the butterflies with spray adhesive and dipped them in pink glitter!

And my final product!!
