Butterfly & Tulip Vase
Paper Casting Project

A lovely addition to your Easter party table!

          

Materials Needed: 

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp each: #057 – Butterfly and #190 – Tulip
100% Cotton Linter (Rycraft Paper Casting Kit or Refill)
2 paper castings* of design 
#057 – Butterfly   and
          4 paper castings* of #190 - Tulip (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions)
1 wood vase painted white
Acrylic varnish

Acrylic paints:  yellow, orange, red, green, blue-green
Glue

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting 
          Instructions
). The choice is yours.

Instructions:

1.  Let paper castings dry thoroughly. Then with sharp scissors carefully cut out 2 butterfly designs and 4 tulip designs. Note: Remove one leaf from 2 of the tulip castings.   
2.  Varnish each cut-out to seal it before painting (so wet paint won't make design swell and disappear). Let dry. Optional: Apply a 2nd coat of varnish for more permanence. 
3.  Apply yellow paint as the background color on the butterfly cut-outs as well as the tulip cut-outs and let dry. Apply red and orange to butterfly (as shown) and to highlights of tulip flowers (as shown).
4.  Apply green and blue-green paint to the raised portions of the leaves as shown.
5.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted cut-outs and let dry.
6.  Glue 1 butterfly to opposite sides of the vase.
7. Glue tulips as shown on opposite sides of the vase, so that there are 2 flowers and 3 leaves.
