Our jewelry keepsakes are inspired by the wonderful heroes from nature. The 3 butterflies that you will make represent the following butterflies in nature

1.Papers have a soft cream background with bright red overall pattern for the wings. It draws inspiration from the Viceroy Butterfly.The Viceroy love moist, open and shruby areas like lakes and swamp edges. They are commonly found all along the eastern USA. Adult butterflies love nectar from flowers of aster, goldenrod, and joe-pye weed. The caterpillars love trees in the willow and poplar families.

For our 2nd butterfly in this kit, we have selected papers with tones of dark purple, light violet, light blue and gold accents. It draws inspiration from the Red Spotted Purple Butterfly, a common species in the USA. We find these beauties in forests and wooded suburban areas. If you would love to help them grow in the wild, a safe habitat would be native plants. In the Southern part of the country their favorite host plant to lay eggs on would be Black Cherry. In the North, they enjoy aspens, poplars, cottonwood, hawthorn, birches, black oak, and service berry plants. Adult butterflies enjoy feeding on tree saps and fermented fruits. They also enjoy drinking from mud puddles.

Our 3rd special butterfly has a cream background, with light green leaf patterns and dark bronze metallic paisleys for its wings, and draws inspiration from the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly. The Eastern Tiger Swallowtail's caterpillars are bright green and love sweet bay, tulip, birch and cottonwood leaves. Adults love the Joe Pye Weed, Milkweed and Lilac for the nectar. They love to hang out in parks and suburban areas and are typically found in the Eastern side of the USA. 

Happy gardening and crafting!
