The world is blossoming all around us, and I think now is as good a time as any to fill it with even more beauty. Today, I’m excited to be sharing a lovely little set of critters that are sure to brighten things up, wherever they decide to land. Incorporate these unique, delicate die cut butterflies in your next creative project!
As part of the “Thomas Family Summer-Fun” schedule, my husband and I recently took the kids to a butterfly atrium, and it was a blast! I couldn’t believe all of the different species of butterflies we were able to see. Davian adored looking at the butterflies through his magnifying glass and trying to get them to hop onto his finger.
There was also a play area where kids could wear butterfly wings, and I was surprised to find that Davian even got into that!
Elliott enjoyed the butterflies from a distance, and was content to have my husband hold him for the duration of the experience (i.e. he was kind of scared of the butterflies and would cry every time Isaac tried to put him down—sacrificing him to the barrage of beautiful, flying insects).
Seeing all those exquisite creatures inspired me to make some fun, die cut butterflies of my own.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome fun freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy making these die cut butterflies! What plans do you have for these enchanting insects?
