Ironically enough, this butterfly scrapbook border is the perfect way to turn any page into a work of art. Follow the instructions below to see how you can create this Maritime butterfly scrapbook layout!
To create this scrapbook layout, you will need:
- Maritime Paper Pack
- Maritime Stickers
- Cardstock: Brown, Evergreen, Navy, White
- 12-inch Straight Trimmer
- Original Border Maker System with Butterflies Border Maker Cartridge
- Tape Runner with Repositionable Refill

Step 1: Use a piece of Brown Cardstock as the base for your layout.
Step 2: Cut a piece of blue patterned paper to measure 11″ x 11″ and adhere to the center of the base.
Step 3: Cut a piece of White Cardstock to measure 10-1/2″ x 10-1/2″. Adhere this piece to the center of the previous blue patterned paper.
Step 4: Cut two pieces of tan patterned paper to measure 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″. These will be your photo mats. Adhere to the lower left and upper right sections of the blue patterned paper.
Step 5: Use the Border Maker System and the Butterflies Border Maker Cartridge to punch a border with a piece of green patterned paper. Cut this border into two pieces that each measure 6″ x 2″.
Step 6: Cut two pieces of Navy Cardstock to measure 6″ x 3/4″ and adhere to the lower half of the punched border on the green patterned paper.
Step 7: Use scrap pieces of cardstock to cut pieces that measure approximately 2″ x 1-1/4″. Adhere one of each color to the back of the border as shown. Bonus: Punch out additional borders with the Butterflies Border Maker Cartridge with each color of cardstock. Then, use the butterfly cutouts and adhere them to the border with Foam Squares.
Step 8: Embellish your layout by adding stickers. Make sure to use Foam Squares on some for added dimension.
Step 9: Journal your story as desired with a Brown Dual-Tip Pen.
