ribbon butterflies (and using up those ribbon scraps)

I have a post up over at the Noel Mignon Tips & Techniques blog on how to make these cute ribbon butterfly embellishments. You can head over there for step by step instructions. They're super easy :) 

I made a small one for this card using a Stampin' Up! Sizzix butterfly die.
I added one of those Martha Stewart doily tags along with a stamped sentiment from Papertrey Ink. I have a few wedding cards to send out and the Truly Scrumptious papers fit my theme perfectly!
Then I made a larger butterfly & added it to a tag that will probably be used at some point for a gift bag.
Again, I used one of the doily tags. I'm addicted to those, I tell ya!
You can make whatever shape you want. You can use them to decorate cards, gift bags, whatever. You might remember I made one of the bigger ones last year to add to this decorated printers tray:
So use up those ribbon scraps :)
