Steps:
> Print out Rhonna Designs Spring Circus Papers, die cut into butterflies, add glitter to the edges.
Cut out Leaves & Butterflies w/ die cuts or hand cut.
> Print out Rhonna Designs Easter Sayings, punch w/ a 1 1/2" scallop punch, glitter around edges. (If you don't have a circle punch, just letters out in rectangles & snip a 'V' in the bottom to create a little banner) (dip in glue or modpodge & dip in glitter) Hot glue letters onto twine, set aside.

Gather supplies & put together the branch by sticking it into the floral foam in the bottom of the container. (You may need to secure w/ some hot glue)
Add Easter grass or paper shred to the base of the branches.
Now, get creative by adding a dab of hot glue directly onto the branch & adding the leaves & butterflies you cut out. At the base, add flowers, tags, butterflies, birds...whatever you've got on hand.
Finally, tie the Celebrate banner onto your branch & step back to enjoy your creations!
