Sparkly Foil and Glitter Butterfly Tag

Easy to make and fun to do for this wonderful kraft and sparkly butterfly Tag.

Handmade by Michelle Johnson.

Things you will need:

Brown Kraft Tag S57307
A4 Adhesive Sheets S57107
Low Tack Stencil Tape S56994
Shiny Transfer Foils Gold S57111
Seed Bead and Glitter Red S57076
Seed Bead and Glitter Green S57075

Seed Bead and Glitter Silver S57080
Crafting Sheet S57132
Silicone Glue S57100

Honeycombe Stencil
3/4 Woodware Stencil Brush
Die cutting Machine
Butterfly Die


Place the stencil onto the tag and secure with  the Stencil Tape.

Dab ink with the 3/4 Woodware stencil brush through the holes then take off the stencil sheet and allow the ink to dry. Use the Crafting Sheet to protect the surface underneath.

Cut out a small piece of  A4 Adhesive Sheets (make sure its still big enough to be die cut by the butterfly) onto the card and peel off the backing sheet to expose the adhesive.

Place the foil lightly onto the adhesive ( dull side down) and stamp the base of the Stix2 glitter tube onto the adhesive to create circles all over.

Randomly tip the bottles of glitter onto the circles holding the card underneath so you don't spill the glitter. Mix them up to get a range of colours.

Pour green glitter onto the butterfly to cover the excess exposed adhesive.

Finally die cut the butterfly and attach to the card with the Stix2 Silicone glue and set aside to dry.
