Thank you, Oddie :D These are just too cute, and fun to make. I found free images on the web,and print them out. I brush with a little glue and sprinkle glitter on them, usually a clear white or irridescent color so the color of the butterfly shows through. Add sequins if you want, too. Then I cut them out and glue them to the back of the fairy I've made. I use tracing paper to print wings,too, a pretty look. You could use the butterflies from WalMart, I think those would be so gorgeous! Cut out a body of a person, and add a photo of a relative's face,like grandkids or yourself. The jars are harder to find. I used to rely on mayonnaise jars, but they've all gone plastic!! So I used a nacho cheese jar, a popular brand, it's nice and tall. And a pickle jar. And somewhere I saved some starbucks iced coffee bottles. I found out that lighter fluid, like for zippos, takes the glue residue off quickly and easily. Now is the time of year to grab up some of that Easter grass to use as filler....and I swore I'd never have that stuff in my house!!!!!!!!! but it works good. I also used hymnal pages and crepe paper cut in strips as filler, and I bought some sheet moss.
