Making a paper butterfly is easier than you might think! And at the same time it does not use much paper. There are some great decorating opportunities for these little flutterbys. You can string them singly and make a butterfly curtain, or make a banner out of them, or make a pretty mobile. Use them to decorate a special gift or the top of a box. Put a magnet on the back and you have a beautiful fridge or metal filing cabinet decoration, remember to match the colors at your projects.
