Vintage Butterfly Print

Hi Ya,
hope you are having a beautiful day.

I wanted to stop in this afternoon to show you how I made my Vintage Butterfly art for my Spring Mantel

1.  I printed off a copy of it from This Blessed Nest, thanks Kellie.

2. I cut it into 4 equal parts

I loved the way this looked but knew for it to work in the frame I had it would have to be bigger.

3. I enlarged each of the four pieces to a full 8 1/2 x 11 page of card stock 

4. I trimmed all the edges

5. I spray painted a picture and frame that I had in storage.
Yes this is a picture my daughter painted, she painted it for her room a few years ago but then she wanted something different and was going to toss it.  I saved it knowing it would be used for something in the future, so please don't think I am a mean mommy.

6. Then I did what all professional framers do......
I grabbed some packets of Truvia and measured off where I wanted each of the prints to go.

7.  Then I used double sided tape to attach each of the prints

I love how it turned out and think it is the perfect Spring picture for my mantel.

Sit Relax and Read
