Item details

Special Edition "Moth of the Month" on Pearl Shimmer Paper
May - Ornithoptera alexandrae (Queen Alexandra's birdwing butterfly)


May brings lush green forests and dazzling floral displays, so it’s only fitting that this bright green Queen Alexandra’s birdwing joins in the fun! Hide one in a spring bouquet, use them to decorate a little cake, or nestled into a fancy head-dress! The "Moths of the Month" designs are only made in a limited number, and will not be re-released this calendar year, so don't miss your chance!

*✳︎*Technical Details*✳︎*

The moths are printed on a heavy-weight Pearl Shimmer paper double-sided, and then expertly lasercut with an insane level of detail (you can see the individual little antennae, just like on a real moth.)

While they are delicate, given that they are paper, they do stand up to some wear and tear. For headdresses, wearing them out to events, or decorating a table display or cake, they are a beautiful option. The main danger is getting them wet, so if you use them on food or wear them in the rain their lives will be pretty short. If you use them to decorate your wall, or indoors as part of a paper project, they should last a long time!

-I will ship your item within 1 week of payment. If the moths you selected are already made and in-stock, they may ship out within 2-3 days. But I only keep a limited number on hand, so especially larger orders may take a full week, since they need to be printed, lasercut, and checked. If for some reason there is a delay in creating your moths, I will let you know right away! My shipping days are usually Tues & Fridays.

-US orders are mailed out via First-Class USPS with Delivery Confirmation, or with Priority USPS for larger orders.

-Non-US orders will be shipped via First Class Airmail unless you request a different shipping method. You are responsible for any customs charges, but I can mark items as a "Gift".

A note about Lasercut Items:

The Lasercutter uses a focused beam of light to cut through the paper. This creates one of the most precise cuts possible. However since it is burning through the material to create the cut, sometimes there will be slight burning visible near the edges of the print. I check each piece carefully to make sure it meets a high standard of excellence, but small burn marks and a smoky burnt paper aroma are a natural part of the process. I can't accept refunds for slight laser burn marks, or print variations as these are an inherent part of this manufacturing process.

Sometimes the lasercut pieces may have a slight smoky smell for a few days (especially right after they're removed from their packaging). This is from where the laser has burned them, I ship from a smoke-free home. But if you are extremely sensitive of allergic to smoke, lasercut items may not be right for you.
