Our adoption agency puts on a dinner each spring for birth mothers (ones who have placed, ones who are considering placing, and ones in the middle of the process). Its a big deal, although I wasn't aware of it until they asked me to be on the planning committee a few months ago.

The colors for the dinner this year are purple and orange, and part of the theme is "The Butterfly Effect".

I cut and folded cardstock:
I cut and ripped strips of patterned paper:

I'm happy with how they turned out, and hope that everyone likes them!
