My Dad collects butterflies and gives them to my girls in frames. Recently he gave them some that were in shadowboxes on quilt batting. I was looking at them this morning and thought, well I could replace the batting with some cardstock and pop them up on popdots. It took a long time (one even lots it's wing), but with determination, glue dots and crystal effects, here is the finished product. It was difficult to get a good picture with the reflections bouncing off the glass. I wish you could see them irl, they are awesome. Thanks Dad, I'm going to hang them in the kid's rooms now.
Thanks for looking.
