If you are a little bored with regular bows to embellish your projects, here is something a bit different: butterflies. Although they are similar to a bow, they have that symmetry and the additional beaded body to turn them to something original.
You can use any straight ribbon, whether it is opaque or translucent, with straight edges or scalloped. If you use a smaller ribbon, the result will be a smaller butterfly. The maximum size it will make is a 900-pixels butterfly. If your ribbon is thicker than 400 pixels, the script will resize it to 400 and work from there.

In order to win this script, add a comment on this Facebook post telling us what you are likely to do with those butterflies (remember, add a comment, not just a Like!) The winner will be announced in the newsletter, next week. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).
For a sampler, I created three straight and translucent ribbons and ran the script on them. I chose some basic colors that should go well with just about anything. You get the butterflies and the matching straight ribbon too.
