Butterfly Stickers on a clear background

Hi, it is Kim here with a simple but effective technique for you to make your sticker embellishments more versatile.

GCD Studios makes a great sheet of butterfly stickers on a clear background (#839). They are one of my favorite embellishments that GCD makes.

I, however, like to add some dimension to these stickers to make them pop from the page more.

This is the layout that I created using the butterfly stickers ...

technique - autumn in bowral (1 of 3)

You can see how the butterflies wing stand up from the page but it is still on a clear background.

Simply stick your clear sticker to a sheet of acetate.

Trim around it.

Bend the wings up.

Then using a clear drying glue just down the centre of the fold, stick it to your layout. Oh so simple, but oh so effective!



  1. That looks like those real butterflies encased in plastic sheets that my mom-mom gave me when I was little. Cool idea.
