DIY Watercolor Butterfly Ephemera

Using stickers from the Dollar Tree you can watercolor them in a variety of different colors and designs. DIY ephemera is unique and can save you money. Using the sticker from the Dollar Tree was easy but you could alternately die-cut your shapes as well.

The close-up image gives you a better look at some of the details on the wings. This was a very relaxing and enjoyable project. I love the results just as much as the process of painting them.

After printing out the free PDF file, fussy cut the butterflies out or use a Brother Scan n Cut to make the job easier. I used flower stamens for the antennae, a bit of glue to stack the butterfly shapes, and I added glitter glue to the edges of each butterfly. The video tutorial below will show you the easy process.
