How To Make Paper Butterflies

Use a pencil or maker to trace the 2 template patterns on the selected coloured craft paper. The template includes 2 patterns, upper wings and lower wings.

Paper Butterflies

Make accordion folds on the wing patterns. Try to keep the folds small and even.

Paper Butterflies

Take the lower wing pattern and apply a drop of glue on the top middle part of the wing pattern.

Paper Butterflies

Take the upper wing pattern and attach it with the lower wing pattern by joining both patterns on the glued side. Squeeze the joint part to make sure that the wings are attached nicely.

Paper Butterflies

Cut a small piece of yarn thread and 2 knots around the joint part of the wings. Keep in mind to tie 2 knots. After tying the knots keep enough yarn thread at both open ends for the antenna pattern and then cut off extra yarn if required.

Paper Butterflies

Done tying the yarn? Now spread the folds of each wing carefully and nicely.

Paper Butterflies

You can use 2 different coloured craft papers for the wings as well.
