My butterfly book hat in the People Tree Catalogue

This headpiece started life as a prop, I had an antique book filled with illustrations of butterflies which I wanted to do something unique with. I cut each one out and then stuck the pages of the book together in such a way as to suggest the book was opening with the butterflies bursting out from between the pages. I later turned the prop into a costume headpiece. Here it was used in the February 2016 People Tree catalogue.
