"I love vintage natural history images and I'm always looking for new ways to display them. I also love to make my own Christmas ornaments and decorations with the stuff around me. So I was really happy when I came up with the idea of making these upcycled butterfly Christmas ornaments for my tree. I used old tuna cans and a dictionary combined with some wonderful vintage butterfly images to make these cool ornaments. They would look great on any tree."
