Lol.  It really didn't take that long.  I started out making just the 3 types.  Then I saw how much I liked doing it I simply made copies of the butterflies and made multiple ones at different stages.  In a day I'd put them on a cork board and outline them but then I'd have the finished ones ready to cut out. It sure is a great therapy project.  It kept me from "thinkin'" too much and kept me outta' trouble for a while.  It also helped get rid of soda bottles also destash a bit with the faux stained glass paints I had left over from another project.(Went kinda' crazy on some of the boring windows in my house.lol)
Thank you for your comments Persephone Hazard!
