Sending You Butterfly Hugs~ The Cutting Cafe Way!

Good Morning everyone!!!
This week Regina over at The Cutting Cafe asked the DT to showcase either

For my project I used a Glassine Bag I picked up at my local scrap booking store and came up with this.....
I took the adorable butterfly background and printed it to attach to the bag, both on the front and back
Cut the butterfly image out using Designer Paper and white card stock and  paper pieced it.
I colored the inside of the butterfly with my copics 
Added some stickles!!  LOVE the bling!
I wanted to add some stick pins so after digging through my HUGE container of beads I found the perfect ones to use as the antenna.
They are stuck through the foam pop dots so there should be no injury with these :)
The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl Jam in Cherry Lipstick
For the back of my bag I used the sentiment from the same set, my EK Sucess punch and some bling
I thought this would make a super cute Lunch Box note, a 3 x 3 card would fit perfectly in this or maybe it will be sent to one of my crafty pen pals!

Make sure you head over to The Cutting Cafe
later this afternoon to check out the rest of the DT's projects. Also comment to win some sets of your own!
