I love creating projects out of magazines. Who knew how versatile they could be. I found these butterflies on Pinterest. I had to try them.
What you will need
What I did, was found that colorful pages make beautiful butterflies. I tore out several pages I liked. I centered the most colorful part of the magazine page for the butterfly wings. I folded once, then again. Then cut a triangle. I opened up the diamond shaped magazine clipping.
Make a fan, starting from the inside, working your way out. I put a dab of glue inside each fold to keep it together. It didn’t take long to dry. Then I opened up the wings a bit. You need two “fans” to make a butterfly. Glue them together then spread them open to your liking.
I think this would make a very cool nursery mobile. Or you could make several of these and put them inside a large shadow box and hang it on the wall as art. There are a number of things you can do with these. Fold small butterflies and attach them to homemade cards, hang them on the inside of the windows or make a kitty toy with them. The options are endless.
