LovePop Monarch Butterfly


LovePop is famous for their intricate 3-D laser cut popup cards.  Each card comes with an envelope and a LovePop insert so the 3-D image is more than a card, it's a gift.  Towards the end of summer, if you look closely among the milkweed pods on Nantucket you will see the stripey Monarch butterfly caterpillar crysalises hiding.  Wait long enough and each will birth a brand new butterfly that will start its migration south soon after its transformation.  Is someone you know going through a transformation?  Send one to your loved one if you are far away, or even better gift it in person.
