Create the butterfly:

Stamp the butterfly, from the Clearly Impressed line Shore Cliff Elements, onto a scrap of canvas with StazOn ink. Paint with a tiny amount of yellow and purple acrylic paint, and cut around the butterfly image.

When dry, layer this canvas over a scrap of yellow fabric and sew the pieces together. Trim the lower fabric into the shape of the butterfly that is a little larger than the canvas. Glue some jewels to the butterfly. Stamp the butterfly again on an old credit card or other piece of plastic. Trim loosely around the image, and this will serve as a backing for the painted butterfly.

Attach the butterfly to the chain:

Cut a chain that is about 3-4 inches in length. Lay the middle of the chain over the plastic butterfly, and attach with hot glue. Next, hot glue the fabric butterfly over the wire with the chain in the middle.

Attach the chain to ribbon:

Attach the chain to some velvet ribbon by threading a small amount of jewelry wire through the last loop and winding the wire around the ribbon until secure. Attach some beads or charms to the velvet. Repeat on the other side of the chain with some fabric scraps and more beads or charms.
