Beautiful Butterflies

I finally got the time to use my Big Shot and flashing to create these butterfly flower pot stakes.  Just one of the many ways you can use your Big Shot to help you decorate around your own home.

To make the butterflies, I used roof flashing that I purchased at a local home improvement store.  I ran the flashing through my Big Shot Machine using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die.  For added texture I then ran the cut butterflies through again using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I used a glue gun to adhere them to a plant stake.  Really easy and fun to make. 

Check back tomorrow to see a wall of pictures I made using more flashing and the Big Shot.

The following Stampin' Up! products were used:
Accessories:  Big Shot Machine #113439, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die #114507, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder #120175

I love you butterflies done with flashing. Will have to send my husband to the hardware store for some and try this with my class. I just subscribed via email to your blog as I am finding some wonderful ideas. Thanks for blessing my day. :)
