My butterfly paper punch is one of my favorite craft tools. I seriously can't get enough of making tiny paper butterflies, even if I don't know what to do with them all! haha! They're just pretty so I keep making them! Maybe I'm a little addicted :)
Here's an idea I came up with to use some of them up........
Paper Butterfly Art Tutorial
Card Stock or Watercolor Paper - cut to desired size
Other colored or decorative patterned papers
Butterfly paper punch (optional- you can make this without it, but this makes it much easier)
Step 1: Using a butterfly paper punch, cut out butterflies of different colors and patterns. I used two plain colored papers and then some fun patterned paper I made before by stamping with watercolors.
If you don't have a butterfly punch, cut butterflies out of paper by folding the paper in half and and cutting the shape of a butterfly's wing out of it- similar to cutting paper hearts. You can find a tutorial for butterflies HERE.
Step 2: Arrange your paper butterflies on your card stock paper. You can line them all up in rows or place some in a corner and have them flying up from there to make it more interesting.
Step 3: One by one, place a photo sticker on the back of each butterfly and press it into place on the card stock. I had to cut the photo stickers in half for them to fit my butterflies.
Step 4: After you have all the butterflies stuck on your paper, you can add a little more interest by drawing the antennae with a ballpoint pen.
Step 5: Don't forget to sign your masterpiece!
