Our Second tutorial is by Gini Williams Cagle:
There is nothing better than a cool breeze on a warm summer day. The smell of fresh air blowing through the windows is wonderful, but it’s even more delightful when you have a little piece of art to dance in the wind. When I received the Spellbinders Birds and Butterflies die set, immediately, I pictured ribbons adorned with delicate vellum butterflies.
Cut a variety of colors of 3/8” satin ribbon at about 18” long. Take each piece, and attach to a plastic ring using a half hitch knot. To secure the ribbon further, take the two ribbon tails and tie in a square knot.
Continue adding ribbon in this manner, and push the pieces tight together, so that none of the base ring shows.
Find two matching tails across from each other, and tie together to form your hanger.
Die cut as many butterflies as you would like to add to your Breeze Catcher (you will need just a few of the large butterflies, and many of the smaller ones). Glue onto the ribbons, making sure to space the butterflies out. This is easier to do if you have the Breeze Catcher hanging, rather than lying flat.
