Today we are making cute butterfly scenes; fun places they can hang out in. We even get to use cupcake liners! The scenes can be anywhere: outdoors, a classroom, your home or even on the tip of your self portrait nose. We enjoy being outdoors so we chose two outdoor settings. Check it out below and don’t forget to share your creations with us.
What You'll Need
* We decided to make our butterflies first but you can color your scene or your background first.
1. Use 1 cupcake liner, fold in half and flatten slightly.
2. Fold once again into fourths.
Repeat steps 1 & 2 to create more butterflies and then set aside.
3. To form the butterfly antennas and legs: cut about 3in from a pipe cleaner, cut in half and then twist the lower parts together. Repeat as needed and then set aside as well.
4. This is the really fun part! You get to create a scene or place for your butterflies to be a part of. Use as many colors as you’d like.
Naomi chose a garden setting with a cute bumble bee. I love how she even included the flight pattern of the bee. Can you imagine the buzzing sound?
I kept mine a little more simple and drew grassy hills, brown fence, small barn, sun and clouds. If you choose a similar scene, you could add some animals, farm equipment or flowers.
5. Glue your antennas, legs and butterflies down and let dry for 20-30 minutes. That’s it!
Naomi chose to tuck in the legs and only show the antennas. *Click on photo’s below for a closer look.
*I cut one liner to create a much smaller butterfly
We hope you have as much fun as we did, it even gave us ideas for other projects in the future.
Happy crafting friends!
