Today's project is a whimsical nightlight from our talented designer, Amy Peterman. Amy took a simple, inexpensive nightlight and decorated it so beautifully! I love how Amy cut around the wings and lifted them slightly away from the paper. It looks as if the butterfly is about to fly away! Did you notice when the nightlight is on you can see the clouds that are on the reverse side of the patterned paper? Beautiful!
On A Whimsy Flutter patterned paper
Summer Soiree Strips patterned paper
All Fall Ric-Rack ribbon
Nightlight (Amy used a Dollar Store nightlight and decorated it. You could also use a nightlight kit found at some craft stores.)
1. Use lampshade as a template to cut out background from Flutter paper.
2. Trim Strips paper with decorative scissors, mimicking the same curve from the lampshade.
3. Adhere Strips paper to Flutter paper and punch holes along bottom edge. Using a craft knife cut around edges of butterfly and gently lift for a 3-dimensional look.
4. Adhere ric-rack trims to top and bottom edges.
