Angel Wings, Butterflies and Flowers

Well I tried something new and just had to share---I know, I'm supposed to be finishing up all the 'started' things!  I'm working on them, trust me.  One of the new papers to pull from my jar was 'make a new thing'.  Dangerous I know, but I'm the boss  :)

I found the idea on this site  http://inkstainswithroni.blogspot.com/2011/02/twisted-wire-paper-charms.html  Please check out the site, she has all kinds of wonderful things  :)

Some wings didn't match up, so I had to make more. 
I didn't check which way I was putting them on the paper!
 The music sheet is Mozart Sonata in C. 
If you wanted to you could match the music to the wings.

Close up of the small butterfly, flowers, and shamrock (yes, that's what it is).
They small butterfly is 1 5/8" tall by 1 1/2" and 
the large butterfly at the top right of the page is 2 1/2" tall by 3 1/2" 

A side view of the wings to show the bend I made after they were dried--be
very careful doing this part. 
They range in size from 2" by 3/4" for the small and 2 1/2" by 3/4" for the larger ones.
In the close one, you see it looks as if the wire and paper is separated, but it isn't,
that's just the thickness. 
Sometimes if the wire isn't really flat, you get a thicker piece.

These would be great on a card or project.  However if you were to put them on a
scrap page you may not want to bend them too much.  


  1. Oooh Nancy, those wings are stunning!! I love music paper and it seems so appropriate for wings - I have no idea why!! I am late doing my woyww visiting this week, sorry!

  2. One of these butterflies would be perfect for The Butterfly Project!!! Love them!
