Intro: Paper Butterfly Fascinator
You can make this in 10 easy steps
What you need
die cutter like Cutterbug or Cutterkids
Craft wire 26 gauge or 24 gauge
paper (paint chipn samples, foil, any kind of double sided scrap book papers)
color tissue paper
adhesive (glue, Xyron adhesive machine)
dollar store thin rigid head band
old iron or laminator
scissors one being a small embroidery scissor
Step 1: Cut the Flower and Butterflies Parts
Using a die and die cutting roller machine and also using a die punch
Step 2: Glue the Butterflies Together
glue a contrasting tissue paper in the middle of the two butterflies and place a six to five inch wire in the middle of the thorax (body)
I used a Xyron adhesive machine to glue together the three pieces.
Step 3: Cut Around the Outside of the Butterflies W/ Tissue Paper and Wire
the small scissors gives more control when cutting out. Be very careful of not cutting the wire.
Step 4: Place the Butterflies With the Wire Into Laminating Pouch
curl the wire loosely and place into a laminating pouch with the wire poking out the pouch, this will help it go through the laminator easier. If you use a old iron on low on a ironing board just place in laminating pouch with the wire hanging out
Step 5: Cut Around the Lamitated Butterflies
to remove extar plastic and add self-adhesive rhinestones to the finished butterflies.
Step 6: To Make the Flower
Use Paint chips samples from the hardware store, cut out flower with dies as well Paint chips give the paper a little weight and last longer without needing the lamination. add self adhesive rhinestones
Step 7: Using a Small Rigid Dollar Store Head Band
Step 8: Wrap the Head Band
using ribbon and glue (like Fabri-tac ) and wrap the ribbon about 1 inch up to the head band and added a wired butterfly continue around the head band adding butterflies here and there.
Step 9: Add the Flower to the Almost Finished Fascinator
by gluing a small piece of the ribbon from the wrap head band
Step 10: Last Step
Wrap the wires around a pencil to make a spring if to long wrap around headband as well
