The Butterfly Jar

Jar and butterfly made with paper
Pretty butterflies with wings of paper took flight from here and there...
Admiring so much the creativity and poetry, I wanted to create some !

Flowers from a wedding dress et bobines de fil Butterfly made with old paper

They are held in flight with some old spools of "wine maker’s twine" found at "Botanique éditions".
So they do not escape, I covered an old glass jar with a child’s cap trimmed with lace.
Despite my vigilance, one of them preferred freedom...
