Gleaming Dragonflies

There are some beautiful photos of dragonflies at Inspiration Avenue's blog!
Here's something I made after giving the challenge a good night's sleep...

I think they are perfect for cards and gifts! :)

Beside the inspiring pictures I applied the instructions of Clare Youngs (Papercrafting in No Time, 2010). Btw, in case you have read the book, I sketched my own patterns for these dragonflies...
This was a quick project in which one needs very little materials: some clothe spins (these were about 2 inches long), sequins, craft gems and glossy papers in three colours.

Thank you for looking!


  1. Your dragonflies are adorable! What a fun idea.

  2. Those are fabulous! They would make great bookmarks, even though the wings might get a bit smushed between the pages of a book.

  3. Very very pretty indeed...beautiful work !

  4. Fantastic! Your dragonflies are beautiful in color and embellishment!

  5. Very crafty and clever.
    Thanks for adding the Tea Badge. I hope to see you there!

  7. It would be fun to use these on a summer picnic table for some whimsical decoration. Great idea!
