Quilled Butterflies

I quilled three butterflies which I turned into window decorations. But the poor little critters were getting bored in the house and wanted to go for a walk in the park. This happened in the only sunny day which we had here last week so I took some photos with the butterflies in their natural environment: resting on flowers.

The length of a butterfly is approximately 4″ (10cm) and its width is 4″ (10cm). They were made of 160g/sm paper hand-cut into 1/8″ (3mm) paper strips.

    So pretty, and those pictures are simply delightful… what big sized butterflies and that you actually cut the strips manually. Hard work there! But well worth it.
