paper butterflies

Just a quick one today.  We went to a free Crafternoon at Debbie Bryan and made these origami butterflies.



The bottom one is made from a punch card from an old lace machine.  I live in Nottingham which was the centre of the lace industry back in the 1800s.  It's nice to have a little piece of history.

I'm not going to wish you merry Christmas today as I'll be back tomorrow!

Interesting work Wendy. I think you need to make more of these pretty butterflies.

Nice and simple but very effective for all that - I love the lace punch card one.
