In this Moxie Fab World challenge we are encouraged to take pieces (non-paper) that we might otherwise throw in the garbage. Off my craft table I grabbed a few pieces of satin ribbon that were trimmed off the ends after wrapping a package. I also have a few small lengths of bakers twine and floss. When I fist grabbed the ribbon ends I thought I would turn them into little banners and stitch them down with the floss. However, after trimming the ends into points I thought it looked like butterfly wings. From there I trimmed both ends of the ribbon and used the twine and floss to tie the middle for the butterfly body and antennae.
