3D Butterflies




About: welcome to my space where I share my creativity and love for do-it-yourself projects. im not really creative, diy'ing to save some bucks. do get in touch or just say hi xxx

One of the walls in my house has a wall art and I wanted to give it an extra touch with butterflies. And I wanted them 3D. This is a simple way to make 3D butterflies with craft paper.

Step 1: Things Needed.

Things you will need are,

Black craft paper
Pair of scissors
Double sided tape

Step 2: Step One:

Download a butterfly template or download a butterfly picture.

I got a picture and drew the butterflies free handed; if you are not good at drawing you can always use a template.

Take long stripe of black craft paper and draw one butterfly in one end, then start folding the paper in to zigzags and cut out the butterfly, this way you can cut many butterflies at once.

Step 3: Step Two:

Fold the wings in upward direction leaving the body part; paste a small piece of double sided tape under the body. Peel off the paper and paste the butterflies on the wall.

    They are sooo cute! Bravo!

    I also love the background with the bloomed branches. Do you have a tutorial for that one too?
