Butterfly Vase

I've been out of town for much of this week, travelling for work, so today's project is a bit on the easy peasy side.  Sometimes I think those are the projects that are the best though. 

I haven't opened my Mod Podge (or as I like to call it Modge Podge) for awhile, so I thought I'd dust it off and pretty up a vase I got with some flowers for Valentine's day.  I'm dreadfully allergic to flowers but it's still nice to have a pretty vase around for silk flowers.

Here are the supplies I used:


Steps:
1) Using a tiny little hole punch, punch out some tiny little figures from pretty gift wrap or scrapbooking paper.  Mine, of course, are butterflies.



2)  Do a dry run on your vase to make sure you have enough little punch outs.  When you're sure you have enough, just paint some regular old Mod Podge onto the front of your vase.


3) Quickly place your punch outs onto the Mod Podge.  Hurry!  It dries quickly.

4) Let it dry and then add a second layer of Mod Podge to seal in the paper.  For a little extra something I used Sparkle Mod Podge.


5) Let it dry again, add some flowers, and that's it!  You're done.  See?  Easy Peasy.

If I had a Cricut the sky would be the limit on this one.  I'd do a lace design or delicate filigree or something.  (I figure if I complain enough times that I don't have a Cricut, eventually someone over at Cricut will notice and send me one to blog about.  Wishful thinking????  Maybe I should start tagging all my posts with "I need a Cricut!")

Leave a comment and let me know what design you'd like to see.  I still have another vase, exactly the same shape as this one that's waiting to be Modge Podged to death.

And don't forget....if you're a follower and you have a blog of your own,
make sure to add a link on the "Follow My Friends" tab up top.  I'll come visit and so will other Etcetorizers,
and from time to time I'll do a full feature post on one of you, like I did
 here .

Have a great week!
