My Life in Arts' n Crafts DT post

I am so excited! This is my first post as part of the 
design team for My Life in Arts' n Crafts!
Such a great place to find all kinds of
fun embellishments! 

So I wanted to do something different
for my first project... 
Here it is:
I set up a cutting file in my Silhouette software to
cut the holes I put the brads in. I then used the Caribbean 
and Charcoal twine to twist around the brads
to make my butterfly. The patterned paper is from
Imaginise. The white card stock was in my stash.
I stamped the sentiment using the 
Hand Scripted from a muse studio.
I will be using this as a birthday card for my
daughter who will be 13 on Friday.
Please head over to the My Life in Arts' n Crafts blog
and see everyone's projects and check out the store 
for all your twine and embellishing needs!
Thanks!

    1. I found a template for string art, I imported the template into my Silhouette software. I placed small circles on the nail spots and added a few additional spots to make it look the way I wanted.
