1. Paint the sides and the back of the butterfly in the color of choice.
2. Trace the butterfly onto a sheet of the Makin' Waves paper. Cut the butterfly out and use the Decoupage to adhere the butterfly cutout to the front of the wood shape. Allow to dry completely.
3. Using the Martha Stewart Glitter Glue, outline the edges of the butterfly and sprinkle glitter over the wet glue.
4. For the accents on the wings, cut almond shapes out of a contrasting piece of paper. You can emboss these pieces if you'd like to add extra detail. Before gluing the wing details down, outline and glitter, just as you did on the outline of the butterfly.
5. Adhere the Prima jewels across the butterfly.
6. Attach the Button Flowers to the body of the butterfly using foam squares.
7. Drill holes in the top for the antennas. Cut two pieces of crafting wire, curl the ends, and glue them into the holes.
