When looking at the holidays that are just around the corner, I know a lot of people are just like us; looking for ways to be able to gift to others yet working with a tight budget. I have been whipping up a bunch of great crafts that are very budget-friendly, even using things from the local dollar store. This Free Butterfly SVG I have to share with you makes for a great “Spread your wings” craft that you can give to anyone who needs a little encouragement or motivation.

Directions for making the project:
Once the design is cut, if you need to trim excess vinyl, do so now.
Cut transfer tape to size.
Using the weeding tool, remove all excess vinyl from the design.
Place transfer tape over design, and smooth with Cricut Spatula or thick card.
Disassemble the photo frame, removing the backing, glass, and any decorative image that came inside the frame.
Center the design onto the backside of your photo frame glass, and adhere using the Cricut Spatula, or thick card.
Cut cardstock to size to fill the frame, (likely 4”x6”, or close to).
Flip the frame upside down. Place the glass back into the frame, and place the cardstock on top of the glass. Replace backing to the frame.
*One way to save a little money on vinyl crafts is to check with your local sign shops. They use vinyl and often have leftovers. They will usually sell you a box of their “scraps” for an incredible discount when compared to name-brand craft vinyl in the craft store. They have a small number of colors – like silver, red, navy, gold, yellow, and royal blue, but a lot of white.
