Birthday Butterflies

At first glance, this looks like a pretty boring card, no sentiments or embellishments. However, this card is made from a napkin. That's right, a napkin! 

I recently went to a three day crop at an LSS and they had this cool free demo. It involves napkins and beeswax and an iron. You divide the napkin up until it's only one layer and then iron it onto paper using wax as your adhesive. Then you add more beeswax on the top to give it a great texture and you can trim it to whatever size you want. 

This card was a birthday card for my brother's girlfriend. Not only is it the wrong size for Operation Write Home, but it also uses wax which would melt too easily in some locations that cards are sent to.
