STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I painted the mailbox with acrylic paint, I painted smaller flowers in the rear to look further away. You can see me paint this in high speed in the video.
I used the CTMH Artiste cartridge and used the butterfly, but the butterfly did not have a shadow or solid back to it so I created it with the hide contour feature. I have the file here you can download to cut your own. I added glitter to tthe top layer of the butterflies, then used my atg to stick together in the middle only so the wings are separated.
To make antennas I used 26 gauge black wire and used one piece of wire and bent it so the ends were sticking out the top of butterfly as the antennas and the body was created. I then covered the body in black glitter glue.
I adhered the butterflies to mail box with a glue gun. I put the smaller ones in the rear to look further away.
I glue on some leaves I took out of the flowers.
I added the flowers, I got 3 bunches from Michaels and put them together. Then I added some butterflies to the flowers.
