Just got myself a box full of butterfly cutters of different sizes and shapes. So, now I'm having a butterfly craze!
This is the finished product where I dust them with lustre dust using a big blusher sized brush. I call them Spring Butterflies.
Equipments to prepare: rolling pin, flower former, folded paper, dusting pouch, butterfly cutter, tips and white flower stamens.
Tips used are 1, 2, 3, 104, 101, 81 and 97.
Firstly, roll out the gumpaste.
Cut out the butterfly using the cutter.
Dust cornflour or icing sugar on both sides to ensure it is not sticky.
Use various tips to cut out designs.
Fold the butterfly and place them on the folded paper on a flower former.
Mold the body and stick in the feelers. Run blade across the body to make horizontal lines. If you prefer white butterflies, then this is it!
Another variation is the Summer Butterflies below.
