To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

I made this a few days ago due to my over abundance of magazine laying around.  They are butterflies cut using Martha Stewart paper bunches then adhered to a paper background using various levels of foam adhesive squares.


If you want to see more pictures, details, and link to the tutorial, you can check out my blog entry:

That is so pretty! I think I'm going to steal your idea and make one for my mom for Christmas. She loves butterflies. What kind of paper is it put on?

This turned out so beautifully. I have tons of old magazines, and I would love to try something like this. You did a really great job.
