Hi crafty friends! Ivy here from@ivypinkmade. Have you ever thought of making your own letter board icons? I’m going to show you how easy they are to make today!


Supplies:



DIY Paper Butterfly Letter Board Icons Supplies


Cut this FREE Butterfly SVG in various sizes on your die-cutting machine.

For my butterflies, I used White Diamond Print Inkjet Glitter - so pretty!

I cut them ranging largest 3” inches to smallest 1.5” inches.

Once you have your butterflies cut out, adhere it on to your iridescent wrap.

I used Bearly Arts liquid glue; it has a fine tip and dries clear. After the adhesive has dried, use scissors to trim off the iridescent wrap.

Next, cut cardstock pieces in different colors to fit the wings.

It doesn't have to be perfect just as long as each color covers each wing window.

Adhere the cardstock pieces and once it dries, trim the edge.

Now, this part is optional but I thought adding crystal rhinestones just gave it a little extra touch. 

Just dab a little glue to add the rhinestones; I love using a crystal katana to pick up the rhinestones.

The very last step is to adhere the letter board pegs on the back of the butterflies.

I used an adhesive dot to stick the pegs on the back of the butterflies.
