Butterfly hair clips are the perfect little claws to help you hold tiny items in place while you wait for glue to dry
Clip out the inside pins from small butterfly hair clips to create small claws to help you hold tiny objects in place while you wait for glue to dry
I also claw the objects just the way I need them and then glue.
Slip twigs or wire in between the claws to be held upright
I use these bright glittered pink claws so that they really stand out and I wont accidentally forget one in the design. I also have a few brown, green and sap green claws for designs where I want to leave the claws as support. These butterfly claws are also great to support creeping plants and orchid flower spikes
Here are some of my designs where I used this tutorial:
This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture
design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for
floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift
packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle
projects arranged in between.
Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and
photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another
