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. After all, my journey into the world of making "punched tin" objects began with a childhood introduction to punched tin mirrors, sconces and ornaments made in Mexico and brought back to Santa Fe homes by friends and neighbors. The love affair began when I was ten years old and has never ended!
