Pattertaters and Butterflies

Don’t butterflies just make you smile – so light and airy – floating along on the breeze from one beautiful flower to the next? Sounds like a pretty good life until you realize how they start out as “ugly” caterpillars and most only enjoy their wings for a short while before dying!

You’re probably wondering about the title of this blog . . . we have a home video of my younger daughter; she’s about 3 years old. She was enjoying the feeling of a caterpillar crawling up her arm. Mom (behind the camera) asks “what do you have?” You guessed it, her answer “ a pattertater”, I asked her again and received the same answer, in a very confident tone. So . . . ever since, at our house, we have pattertaters that turn into butterflies!

File available at Cutters Market

With today’s file you can cut your own 3-D layered butterfly, fold lines are included in the file. Besides a scrapbook or card embellishment this would make a great package “bow” if you cut it large enough! I’ve added a bit of Stickles Glitter Glue to my sample image.

Have a great weekend – and keep your eyes open for those pattertaters!
