Remember The Butterfly Project!

Just a reminder… Your Butterflies are due at the end of the month! Please don’t forget! You still have time! Please link to this post to let all your crafty friends know too!

Butterflies made by the Chicagoland Craft Collective

Craft Critique is so proud of our readers and the lovely work that we have already received for Holocaust Museum of Houston’s Butterfly Project. It is so rewarding putting together all of your wonderful work, so we are extending the deadline until September 30. This means that you still have time to send us a butterfly to represent a child’s life lost. (I won’t send the butterflies until after October 15th probably… so just send yours in TODAY!)

After you send us your butterflies we will send them all together to Houston to be included in the exhibit in Spring 2012.

All of us together can make a big impact in this important project with our simple crafty talents!

Here are some things to remember when making your butterfly.

  • Butterflies should be no larger than 8 inches by 10 inches.
  • Butterflies may be of any medium the artist chooses, but two-dimensional submissions are preferred.
  • Glitter should not be used.
  • Food products (cereal, macaroni, candy, marshmallows or other perishables) also should not be used.
  • Place your butterfly in a Ziplock Bag with your name and address.

You can send your Butterflies to us here:

Are you REALLY stumped for a butterfly craft? Then print this free coloring page, have your kids (or you) color it in, cut it out and send it in!

Now that you have all the information you need we are going to sweeten the deal by reminding you that there is still one giveaway to go along with The Butterfly Project. Take a look back at THIS post to see the beautiful butterfly stamp set donated by Jessica Diedrich. 2 sets have already been given away, but we still have one more set to gift to a participant…. just leave a comment with a link to your butterfly here, or on any of the Butterfly Project posts.

More thanks also to Maria Colosimo of Kitchen Sink Stamps who donated a prize last month. And Christy Nelson who supported the project with her craft kits! What a wonderful group of crafty women we know!

    Are photographs okay? I have a nice photo of a monarch I took a couple years ago and I’d be happy to send a copy~
