Butterfly Postcard


I made this butterfly card for my aunt Gloria who is undergoing cancer treatment. Since she lives close by, I took a chance and glued some "jewels" on the butterfly. I used regular white glue, but I wonder if crazy glue would be better. I know that a glue gun doesn't work, since I received a postcard with parts missing due to this technique.

Anyone know what works best?

I also did a bit of thread painting on the butterfly's wing in dark blue. Fun!

Pretty postcard!

I like Loctite Multi-surface Adhesive Gel for gluing stuff to fabric. It's acid free, non-toxic, and best of all, fume free.
