Up-cycled Baby Wipe

100_7375I have another mid-week inspiration post for you again this week.  Today’s card features a used baby wipe turned into a beautiful butterfly.


Instead of throwing away the baby wipes I’ve used to clean up my work area after using inks, I save them and dry them out. I decided to use one to create the butterfly on this card.

Step One: Die cut a scallop circle (Spellbinders nestabilities)

Step Two: Cut your circle in half and fold it over – glue the two pieces together in the center

VARIATION: Instead of cutting the circle in half – scrunch it together in the middle and slip it into your mini clothespin

Step Three: Using craft wire, form two antennae and place them behind the baby wipe wings

You can decorate your clothespin with cardstock or paper to match your card or project and decorate your wings with beads, sequins, or even stamp on them!

100_7378Here are the supplies and tools I used to create this bright and cheery butterfly card: Watercolor paper, Merlot Color Burst, Music Background Stamp (Stampin’ Up), Embroidered Lace Deep Edge Punch (Martha Stewart), Mini Clothespin, Baby Wipe, Sequins, Wire, Hello Sentiment (Momento Die), Definitions (Stampabilities), Picked Raspberry and Black Soot (Distress Ink), Victorian Butterflies (Rubber Stampede), Scallop Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Glue, Glitter

100_7379I’d love to see how you upcycle things or use color bursts on your projects so stop by the CURRENT CHALLENGE and link up your creativity that used products from companies carried in the Cropstop store! Hope to see you there….

  1. very creative, I have looked at a few of mine thinking it had pretty colors on it, will have to keep this in mind if I have some pretty colored ones 🙂
