Free Printable: Butterfly Garden Gift Tags!

I have a free printable for you today ...  a collage sheet of pretty butterfly tags!

These images were sourced from a beautiful vintage book on butterflies ... and the tags were actually the inspiration for the whole Butterfly Garden Collection that I created and licensed to Pink Paislee!

These would make really pretty gift tags, embellished with glitter, ribbons and antique buttons! Have fun, and I'd love to see what you create with these!

Butterfly Garden Gift Tags Tutorial - you will LOVE these! :)

I know this is really crazy ... but I've had my own personal copy of the Butterfly Garden Scrapbook Collection which I created for Pink Paislee, sitting unwrapped on my shelf since it was first published a few months ago!!  One of the reasons is that I've been so busy working to deadline on some awesome new collections and I just don't get time to play!  But the other is kinda silly ... I was afraid to create something with this collection because it looks so pretty in the packet I was afraid that if I took it out, and started making stuff, I could mess up. Isn't that crazy? I know!

Well, tonight (after months of hesitating), I finally decided to get down and dirty and just GO FOR IT! I've been dying to use the clear stamps anyway, so I just took them out of the packet and started to PLAY.  In fact my daughter Georgia and I started experimenting and then decided to make a fun little video about it. It was never meant to be published - OK?! :) It started out as a fun family video ... and here's what we came up with!

I hope you like this easy-to-make gift tag idea and get inspired to create some yourself :) If I can make something like this, then you can do it too!

OH, BTW ... this is my *first ever* crafting video, so *be kind* :):) and don't mind the quality (shot on my Blackberry phone in the bathroom with desk lamps). I promise, I'll get pro at this soon! :)

Here are some preview pics as well ... let me know what you think!

and here is the video tutorial!
Credits: Thank you to my daughter Georgia Rose for being the camera person. Thank you Tim Holtz for the inspiring products. Thank you Pugly Pixels for the awesome blog embellishments (doiley, washi tape, french invoice medallion). All other graphics by Gypsy Chick/Jodie Lee. The Butterfly Garden Collection Stamps and pop stickers are sold out. You may find these on ebay or etsy, but feel free to substitute these stamps for any other type of botanical type stamps and stickers. Have fun!
