CHA Kite

Hello, all! Just popping in to share my kite for the Papertrey Ink CHA SuperShow Booth. Started with a kraft base cut from a full 8 1/2" X 11" sheet of cardstock. For a bit of added dimension, I scored a couple lines and bent the kite just a tad. Tied a bow to the bottom and attached strands of both Hibiscus Burst saddle stitched & twill ribbon.
Die cut and punched butterflies from white cardstock. Stamped with Sweet Blush polka dots using Polka Dot Basics II and then crinkled.
Embellished each butterfly with a Hibiscus Burst vintage button and Dark Chocolate baker's twine. Arranged and attached the fluttery butterflies with dimensional adhesive and finished it of with a sentiment from Flutterby Friend.

Thanks for stopping by!
