Accordion Butterflies

While I was away with my Besties this past Spring at the Making Memories Expo in Columbus, Ohio I saw these beautiful butterflies at one of the booths. However, the booth was selling them in their kits and not separately. Knowing I didn't want to pay $30.00 for a kit for what I wanted... I scoured the Internet and found them for $5.99 plus shipping, but they only came three per pack.
Here is the butterfly attached to the page kit that I saw at the convention.
Alright, so I decided that I would attempt to use my Gypsy to create these butterflies on my own. It took me several hours, but If I welded together one Large oval and one small oval and then accordion folded them at 1/4" they turned out pretty neat. I did not add the metal antenna and body. I just used some elastic that I had in my stash. Love the idea and so I made several for my stash.
