DIY Butterfly Canvas Decor

While you may associate butterflies with spring, the (aptly named) Perfection collection from SEI proves that these lovelies can make a year-round appearance in your craft projects. I'm obsessed with anything and everything gold foil, so the die-cut butterflies in this collection with gold accents made me swoon as soon as I laid eyes on them!

The butterflies are so beautifully delicate, and I thought they could make for an impactful focal point all on their own. I decided to make a 3-D art/home decor canvas for placing on a shelf or mantle. I arranged a variety of the die-cuts in a grid, then used large glue dots in the center for attaching them to the canvas. (I was slightly concerned about the adhesive sticking to the canvas material, but these glue dots were actually very strong.) I swapped out the last butterfly for a little sentiment sticker combo from my stash. Then I "fluffed" out the wings so these little butterflies look like they're ready for takeoff.

How have you played with the butterflies in this collection? Have you made any home decor projects with your SEI kits? As always, we'd love to see, so be sure to share in the comments!

Happy crafting,
