faux butterfly taxidermy

I was looking up the definition of taxidermy when I found this.

I decided I wanted to try my hand at it with paper butterflies. And this is what I made. My effort is diminutive; less than ten inches tall.

The bowl, the base (a votive holder), the moss, and the fake flower were all purchased at Dollar Tree.

You can find my tutorial at Suite101.

I will be sharing this at:
