Creating The Butterfly
Punch pattern paper twice one way and flip the paper over and punch two more times.  This will give you the right and left side wings.  Place your wings onto the molding mat pattern side up.  Press down with the large 8mm ball stylus and move it around in small circular motions which will soften and curl up your paper.  Start layering your wings on top of each other to create your dimensional butterfly. Add the butterfly body and embellish with pearls.
