Butterflies in May! Punched Tin Butterflies for Cinco de Mayo!

punched tin butterflies 4

May 2014 is butterfly month on Gingerbreadsnowflakes! And in honor of Cinco de Mayo it seems only appropriate that the butterfly series begin with "punched tin" butterflies.

The love affair began when I was ten years old and has never ended!
