Today I was playing with two of my favorite items from the Occasions Mini Catalog to create chocolatey Easter treats and came up with a super cute & fun idea that I wanted to share with you…
It is a beautiful free-standing Butterfly complete with a Hersheys Chocolate Egg and she is made using the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the co-ordinating Blossom Punch, both of which you can find on pg 17 of the Occasions Mini Catalog…
I just knew that I would get emails asking me how I made her, so I have put together a free printable tutorial for you which you can find a link to below PLUS I have some yummy Blog Candy up for grabs, so please read on for the details…
Isn’t she beautiful? And she has some friends as well…I found that there are 3 colors in this years pack of Hersheys Eggs and so I decided to match them to my ink & cardstock colors and I found 3 perfect matches – for the pink I used Melon Mambo, the blue I used Island Indigo and the green I used Garden Green…
And these beautiful Butterflies could not be more fun & cost-effective to make – each is made using just 1 stamped image using a stamp from the set Mixed Bunch which you can find on pg 17 of the Occasions Mini Catalog…
You then punch out that image using the Blossom Punch (also on pg 17) which co-ordinates perfectly with 3 of the flower stamps in this set – and then you punch out another piece from a sheet of solid cardstock for the backing…
This is what they look like before the Chocolate Egg is added – if you add that egg using removable adhesive, then they will not be damaged when the egg is removed so that your lucky recipient can keep them…
This photo also shows you what they look like from the side – they are supported by their very own built in stands which are made by making cuts into the back piece of cardstock – no fiddly bits to add – it is all in one and easy to do – and your butterflies will remain freestanding even when you add the weight of an egg!
So what supplies will you need to make your very own Butterflies?

This is probably my most favorite project of yours so far, and I’ve been reading your blog for about six months. So impressive – this is why I love to read blogs, because I’m not very creative on my own, but I know you can do amazing things with the stampin’ up products. Thank you thank you for sharing your talent.

Hey Sarah – This is a wonderful idea! I’ve missed your frequent blog posts.
So cute! They will make great place setting decorations for Easter!
The blue is georgeous! Thank you so much for sharing.
Are you kidding me????? This is the best Easter idea so far this year and I doubt anyone will beat it.
How adorable. I just love them, which I had seen this earlier to make some for an event this friday. My mom called me this am to tell me about hem. She was right, great idea. I’ll have to make some for this easter festivities.
These are simply adorable! I love them all. My favorite is Island Indigo! These would make such cute place markers for Easter dinner!!
Thanks so much for sharing!!
thank you so very much for the tutorial… this is such a darling idea… I have 2 new little girls in the family that will love this idea… thank you again for sharing the tutorial and your wonderful creativity.
Very, very cute. I have to run right out to get some eggs, so that I can make them for my granddaughters’ Sunday School classes. Thanks for sharing all of your ideas.
WOW how simply gorgeous thank you so much for sharing this project off to have a better look at your blog.
I just love these butterflies. My favorite is the green, which is my favorite color. I am planning a tea party and these will be great little treat for my guests at their place setting. Thanks so much for sharing.
These are adorable!!! I want this set and punch so badly. But would love to win the kit for now to show folks. Thanks for offering that. The other day I saw a recipe for cookies, make macaroons, but make a thumbprint in the middle so it looks like a nest, bake til the coconut is a bit toasty. Fill the thumbprint with Nutella, and put 3 small speckled candy eggs on top. That would also look cute on this if you wrapped the cookie in some plastic. Butterflies could have nests…right? lol
oops, forgot to say what my fav color was. Since the silly chocolate people didn’t do a purple one…..I will go with the blue one.
cute! cute! cute!
Love these butterflies and the colors you’ve used. Thanks for sharing the tutorial which I’ve already printed.
i love the creative way you used to make the butterflies.yours is the best i’ve seen!thank you for being so generous with the tutorial and blog candy.hugs
I LOVE this idea,I made a few and can’t wait to put them on our Easter table as a little decoration at each setting! Can’t choose a color there ALL so cute.TYFS.
What a creative idea! These would look great sprinkled around the Easter table (but you must make at least one for every person, because people will want at least one!).
As for a favorite color, I’ll have to go with Island Indigo – it’s my go-to color of the moment. Can’t get enough of it!
Thanks for another great idea – and tutorial
Thank you very much for this cute idea!
Lovely greetings from Germany
Super cute, as always, Sarah! Blue is my favorite, every time. Too bad I am too late to enter, but wanted to tell you it was adorable anyway. Thanks for sharing your talent!
Just love these. I was looking for a quick, cute and easy gift idea for my k4& k5 co-op home school sweeties. This is perfect! I love the Melon Mambo!! Thank you for sharing your yummy idea:-)
where did you find the hershey eggs ? thanks for the idea
Love these butterflies. Such a clever and inspired idea. Thank you so much for sharing.
You completely – and immediately – inspired me to make my own version using the Beautiful Butterflies die as we don’t have this punch and stamp set in the UK yet!! And no Hersheys eggs either – so I used the Lindor ones instead!! http://thecraftspa.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/easter-lindor-chocolate-egg-butterfly.html
So again thank you Sarah – I really love this chocolate treat!!
I’m too late for blog candy, but I wanted to tell you I love the butterflies regardless! Awesome! Love the little quilled antennae!! TFS!
want to make these for little girl i menter. these are sooo cute thanks for sharing
