Embossed Paper Butterfly Paper Clip - Inkspiration Color Challenge #194

This is an item for my craft table - an embossed paper butterfly paper clip.  The colours I used were from the Inkspiration Color challenge #194 here   - perfect for a butterfly.

The giant paper clips I purchased at a Stationary Store

Papers: Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Whisper White, and Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Embossing folders: Perfect Polka dot, Square Lattice, Antique Wallpaper; Sticky pages, 1/2" circle punch, rhinestones, giant paper clip, Beautiful wings die and the Big Shot

  1. With the Beautiful wings die and the Big Shot, die cut 2 medium butterflies in Melon Mambo, 3 small butterflies - one each of Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, and Whisper White, and one medium butterfly in the Sticky Paper
  2. Emboss each of the wings with a different embossing folder.
  3. Sponge the edges and embossed surfaces with Elegant Eggplant ink and a sponge.
  4. Remove the protective surface of the sticky page butterfly and adhere one of the butterflies to it, matching shapes.
  5. Remove the other protective surface of the sticky page.  Adhere the top of the paper clip, positioning it in the middle of the butterfly.
  6. Adhere the second medium butterfly on top of the paper clip and sticky page, matching the shape  of the butterflies. 
  1. Turn the paper clip over and adhere the other butterflies by applying a tiny strip of sticky paper in the middle - first the Old Olive, then the Elegant Eggplant, and finally the Whisper white.  
  2. With a 1/2" circle punch, punch 2 circles and attach then to the bottom wings of the butterfly
  3. Attach rhinestones to the middle and in the middle of each of the Elegant Eggplant circles
