Vellum. I always forget about vellum. I buy it once every few years for a specific project, and then it goes into the darkness of my craft cabinet (the cabinet in my craft room is where I put all my random forgotten embellishments).
The other day I was thinking of butterflies. Like ya do. I love printing them with cardstock, and I thought I’d try it out on vellum! After an entire afternoon of sorting through 1/2 finished scrapbook kits and neon ribbon, I found my stash of vellum! A quick dust-off and it was good as new!
For this fun butterfly project, I simply printed each butterfly twice, fussy cut them, and stacked them (adding glue only in the center). Fold up the wings when dry and voila! Gorgeous, ephemeral butterflies!
Here’s my video tutorial, if you’d like to see the process in real life 🙂
I’m super happy with the way they turned out! Now, I’m looking to print all KINDS of ephemera with vellum – just to experiment!
What do you think? Any other vellum printable ideas you can suggest? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
