I just love craft paper but add a little paper crimping and you've got a match made in heaven :)
Here I made three (graduated in size) butterflies. Two are out of plain craft paper and one was cut from the DCWV PLAYTIME stack which I LOVE.
To add some color, I used Tim Holtz distressed ink all over one of the plain paper ones, of course I inked the edges on all three. Add some glimmer mist before you crimp them if you like. The ones pictured below are just inked.
I bent the wings up and glued them together in the center with some dimensional silicone to give each layer a little lift.
I've made letters like this also and I really like the look.
