This simple butterfly looks beautiful on both sides. Hang it from a light fitting or in a doorway.
What You Need:
- Colour or paint a piece of paper on both sides and let it dry.
- Fold the entire piece of paper in an accordian style starting at the short edge.
- Fold a pipe-cleaner in half and make a twist about one centimetre from the fold. Make another twist about one centimetre from the last one. Place paper in the V shaped groove of the pipe-cleaner and twist again, making sure that the pipe-cleaner is holding the paper firmly in place.
- Make a final twist about one centimetre from the paper and extend the ends of the pipe-cleaners to form antennae. To finish off, pop beads on the end of the pipe-cleaners.
