Butterfly Love Tag- PH DT offering

Good Morning everyone!!! Guess what today is...It's my (Kimi) first day posting as a member of the Paper Hoarders Design Team! I couldn't be more excited about it!!! For today we were asked by our wonderful leader Tanya to make a project incorporating butterflies! How fun! Since I've recently moved I don't have everything unpacked and set up completely so I knew I wasn't going to be able to rely on my cricut. I'd have to do things in an all new (to me) way! I also knew it was going to have to be something simple! Here's my tag!

I had seen someone (and please forgive me because I can't remember who!) make letters using their hot glue gun, dawn dish soap, water and wax paper. I thought... I have all these things. Looks easy. I can do this. HA! Not as easy as I thought it was going to be! However I think for my first (or really 10th) attempt it didn't turn out to bad! I made the "LOVE" with this technique! A tip...If you try this start simple. Plain print....Cursive is TRICKY! ;)

I stamped the tag with some phrase stamps I had from the $1 bin at Joann's. Then I stamped and embossed the butterflies from a Martha Stewart Set! Forgive me I've put everything away and am too lazy at the moment to get up and look to see the exact name! ;) Next I used my blending tool and some Tim Holtz Distress inks to go over it all! Loved how it turned out! I added some butterflies I had in my stash as well as a Prima Rose, Chocolate Pearls, and Lace and Ribbon from my stash! I am really happy with how it turned out! Sometimes simple is best!
