More DIY Spring Home Decor

This project passed the test!  When I showed it to my daughters, they both asked me to make them one with their names for their bedrooms.   Impressing teenage girls is the most difficult thing to do! 

I used thin cardboard coasters for the back pieces.  I covered them with Stampin' Up!'s "Sweet Pea" Designer Series Paper Pack, and attached them at the corners with Mod Podge.

The "h e l l o" are chipboard letters that I painted with Stampin' Up!'s craft ink in Rose Red.  I adhered the letters to the coasters with Mod Podge.

I used my Sizzix Big Shot machine to die cut the butterflies (Stampin Up!'s "Beautiful Butterflies" Bigz Die) and the thin green vine (Sizzlits "Swirly" Decorative Strip Die.)  Once again, I used Mod Podge to adhere everything, but as you can see, I only adhered parts of the butterflies and vine so they would be 3-D.

I topped it off with a large brad and some ribbon for hanging.
