Butterfly napkin holder

To go with my "All of a Flutter" Easter theme I made butterfly napkin holders using small decorative paper and silk artificial flowers and mini wooden butterflies with paper butterflies adhered to the wooden ones to give them a lovely 3D effect. I then found some pretty blue and white and pink and white gingham napkins to place inside them.
