Have you noticed all the beautiful art and craft around that features pretty paper butterflies?  You don't need to be a brilliant artist to create your own - there are many free butterfly templates available on the internet.  If you have a pair of scissors or a craft knife, some card and paper then you can begin to make your beautiful paper butterflies. Even quicker would be to use a  large butterfly punch - you'll have a swarm of paper butterflies before you know it! We found this extra large butterfly punch on Amazon, but if you google there are loads to choose from - 'Butterfly Punch Search'

Paper butterfly handmade cards

Vintage Page designs has used butterflies, cut from pretty patterned paper to decorate simple handmade cards - she's added beautiful details with pearls and gems - they look fantastic.  This would work equally well for a bright card using colourful cardstock.
