5.       The pleated gate card is attached to 5 ½” x 4 ¼” Wild Wasabi cardstock.

6.       The Belly Band is Wild Wasbasi and cut at 1” x 11” and scored at 3 3/8” and 7 ¾”.

7.       Wrap around card and use Snail Adhesive to adhere the ends.

8.       To make the butterfly:  Use the Magnetic Platform in the Big Shot.  Put down cutting pad, then dryer sheet unfolded and then folded in half, the 4 ¾” x 4” Pacific Point cardstock, the large butterfly thinlet, and the other cutting pad.  Run it through the Big Shot.  Most of the little pieces will stick to the dryer sheet instead of your butterfly, but if they do they will easily come out.  Dryer sheet can be used over about 3 times.  Attach Pearl Basic Jewels to your butterfly and attach to the belly band with Glue Dots.
