Paper Butterfly
166 9065
A really effective little project that's just like a magic trick

folded paper spangled black butterfly
Make this beautiful butterfly in about 5 minutes from any small scrap of old wrapping paper. This project is perfect if you are making your own greetings cards or just want to decorate your room with something pretty. Make it out of brown paper to make a moth folded paper green butterflyand tie it off with parcel string. Or of course you could design and colour in your own using plain paper and felt tipped pens.
. . . When you've finished making the wings and spread them out, you can customise your butterfly as much as you want. You could wrap a small piece of pipe cleaner round the middle on the body to make a head, abdomen and thorax of the butterfly, or blob glue gun glue on the body and color it with marker, of stick beads or sequins on to give the appearance of those beautifully iridescent butterfly scales.

The instructions are so easy to follow, and the download comes in both US Letter size and A4 just click on the size you need, to download it.
