Recently I had a box of chipboard butterflies that I gave to my twin granddaughters.  However the box had come with an uneven number of butterflies.  Figuring that that could be a problem when they went to divide them, I took one out and used it myself!  lol  Problem solved.

You know those little ribbons that come sewn into the shoulder seams on the inside of women’s tops?  Well mine always get cut off and put into the ribbon drawer.  Used some of them here on this card.

Thanks so much from dropping by today.  Hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Your butterfly looks so pretty! what a clever idea for repurposing those little ribbons.

  2. Way to re-use those ribbons, and how clever too! Love this pretty butterfly, and especially that great embossed background! NJ!

  3. Very pretty Susan. I agree problem solved as that is how the boys are when dividing things. ha! Did you ever see the peanut butter commercial where the one boy gets to cut the sandwich and has a snicker on his face? Then his mom lets his brother pick the half he wants. LOL That is what I do with the boys, works everytime with even portions! ;0)
