Butterfly spiral card

Hi, this is the post I promised on my last post "Last minute Christmas card". Finally I'm able to post it after finishing 3 other projects ;

1st. Right after Christmas - I need to prepare  napkin rings (14 of those) and 5 "segnaposto" (looks like favor box, just smaller) for last dinner on 2010 - I'll load some picts on my next post "New Year project part one"

2nd. Followed by the first of January lunch, I've prepared 11 favor boxes, please check also my "New Year project part two" post

3rd. Guido and Dora 60th anniversary on the 8th of January, I made 30 favor boxes (delivered today :D YEAH!!), it will be posted under the title of "Torte bomboniere, Nozze di Diamante"

Ok, now back to spiral card . I figured out how to fix the hole on the card, unlikely my previous card "Last minute Christmas card" post, so the spiral pop up will look really nice when opened vertically from the side :

Cut the spiral separately from other piece of paper, and then attach it to the card.

I recommend using a stapler, just to make sure it will hold the spiral firmly

conceal the stapler mark with another butterflies, or flower.  The bigger the spiral, the longer it will stretch, and the card will open wider.

 continue attaching more butterflies on the spiral, decorate with flowers. In this picture I'm using a lotus pop up flower.

decorate also the front card with the same color theme...and we are DONE! :D

(I was listening to Astrud Gilberto ; singing "It Might As Well Be Spring" over and over  again while making this card)
