I had bought a butterfly punch for a project (a family tree that you can see here).

I found more ways to use that butterfly punch, and I want to share them with you here!

One thing I did was to glue the butterflies on top of pens.  I found that glue from a hot glue gun worked best.

Here is a different color combination.

Here is how they look from the top.  Don’t these butterflies make you want to use one of these pens?

Another thing I did was glue the paper butterflies on top of these water bottles.  Wouldn’t this be a neat idea for a party?  Maybe a baby shower, or just a spring grilling get-together.

For a baby shower, I spray painted the lids of baby food jars. I glued the paper butterflies to the top of the lid, added a ribbon and a Baby blocks label, and filled the jars with M+Ms for favors.

The butterflies were just the right size!

For the same baby shower, I made a framed print using paint color samples.  I spray painted the frame the same color as the party favor lids.

I attached the butterflies to the outside of the frame.

I hope that you have enjoyed these ideas of how to use Paper Butterflies!
