I adore it so much and decided it couldn't be tucked away in the pages of a scrapbook - why not make one to hang on the wall as well? And photograph the process so you can make one too! After all, I can't be the only one who loves butterflies and rainbows.
So to begin, you'll need..
plain black frame (12x12)
circle cutting template
2 sheets white card stock
5 solid color card stock papers - red, orange, yellow, green, blue
5 patterned papers - red, orange, yellow, green, blue
3 cloud die cuts (or make your own freehand)
dimensional foam adhesive
old newspaper or cardboard
1. Cut a 5.5" circle from one sheet of the white card stock.
2. Using your solid red paper, use your template to cut a 4.5" circle and without moving the papers, cut a 5.5" circle around the smaller one. You will end up with 2 circles that look like this:
3. Now cut the remaining solid colored papers as above. The finished sizes should be red - 5.5, orange - 4.5, yellow - 3.5, green - 2.5, blue 1.5.
4. Lay down some old newspaper or cardboard to protect your work surface, then spray or spread glue over the first white circle. Now adhere the red circle around the white card stock and fill in the center with the remaining colored circles to make the rainbow.
5. Using a piece of even scrap paper, cut the rainbow in half a little below the center. Then cut out the remaining white center of your half rainbow. The outlines of my circle are a bit uneven, but that's okay - we will cover it up in the next step.
8. Next glue the other piece of white card stock to the cardboard back piece of your frame. Glue it to the side you want showing through the frame.
10. Pop your picture into the frame - I had to remove the glass because it was too tall. If you'd like, add a few extra butterflies flying down towards the rainbow and maybe even some inspirational words.
11. Hang and admire!
