We have been learning about butterflies recently so I decided we should make some. I scoured the internet and found so many great craft ideas. I loved these little cupcake case butterflies but they either used 4 cupcake cases to make 4 wings or 2 to make 2 wings. I experimented and found out that by folding them in a certain way I could make 4 wings using only 2 cases. Here is my tutorial.
Cupcake cases (2 per butterfly)
Wooden clothes pegs
First, get 2 cupcake cases.
Fold them in half.
Fold them over again with one side overlapping the other like this. See, It looks like 4 wings!
Glue in the middle.
Next, Glue a wooden clothes peg in the middle.
Then have fun decorating with glitter. Finally, use a gem as the butterflies head.
These are R's creations!
These are D's creations! As you can see, she used a lot more glitter.
