One of the reasons I enjoy reading blogs is that not only do they inspire me to do things, but there are so many amazing talented people out there who create and write great things. One such blog is Ginger & George. The post that inspired me this week was the tutorial for making peg butterflies. As I have quite an obsession with butterflies, I knew I had to have a go. Fortunately, I already had a wooden peg ready to be used, thanks to my Crafty Fox Box and I always have plenty of paper in so it was a no-fuss, easy to follow tutorial.

Butterfly

I used some new washi tape to cover the body (boy do I have a thing for spots at the moment!), used some old wrapping paper and one of the bags that came with my Crafty Fox Box. So I’m not only creating something new & unusual for my room, but I’m also reusing something & turning it into something pretty! Despite having to draw the butterfly free hand, I think I did a pretty good job! It’s such a lovely idea and a great way to jazz up a gift card or a present.

The tutorial was easy to follow, which is always good for me! And it didn’t require lots of different bits of kit, which always puts me off. Have you made anything this week or have anything crafty planned for the weekend? Or have you pinned any tutorials that you can’t wait to do? Let me know & have a great weekend šŸ™‚
