These butterfly printables are drop dead gorgeous! Wow can they be used in many, many ways!!! I can see them on these mini clothespins, on the front of greeting cards and to embellish scrapbooking layouts. I for one want to try them on mixed media projects...either journal pages and/or stretched canvas. These are a true find! Thank you!!!

These Mini Clothespin Butterflies are very cute and seem like a lot of fun to make. It is such a simple project that is so pretty. I can see these used as the project suggests, as well as part of a coordinated paper gift set. How about turning some of these beautiful butterflies into stickers?
