Bees and Butterflies is a true sign of spring. Christine Santos created a hanging butterfly terrarium filled with burlap flowers and natural sisal, giving it a full-on Canvas Corp twist. It’s a wonderful, delicate and full of spring decoration inspired by our March “Re-birth” Challenge.
Christine says “I’ve created a terrarium that’s fun and easy to make. To me, Spring is all about re-birth…the blooming flowers and fluttering butterflies coming out after the cold winter.”
You can easily make a similar projects as Christine by following her step-by-step instructions below.
Trim a long strand of Sisal Rope and fray all the strands to get lots of textures string pieces. Form these into a messy ball and place them inside the glass terrarium. Layer the Lime Green Burlap Flower on top of the frayed strings of Sisal Rope.
Cut out the gorgeous butterfly image from the Spring Showers Printed Canvas Sheet and slightly fray its edges. Adhere this on top of the Lime Green Burlap Flower. Adhere a cluster of flowers at the lower left part of the terrarium, topping it with the nest fussy cut word from The Watering Can paper.
Deconstruct the Natural Burlap Flower and adhere this under the terrarium, positioned just behind the flower cluster. Fray some of the edges, leaving a few bits dangling at the bottom of the terrarium. I addition, fray a few more strings from another short piece of sisal rope and adhere these just under the Natural Burlap Flowers. Finally, fray a few more string from another short piece of sisal rope and adhere these just under the Natural Burlap Flowers.

I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality).
My "style" is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something - well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist...)
