This craft is simple to make, but it does require a bit more parental participation since it involves an Exact-o knife and a hot iron. Here’s what you’ll need in the way of supplies:
- Black cardstock paper
- A white pencil crayon
- An Exact-o knife
- Wax paper
- Tissue paper
To assemble your butterfly, follow these steps:
3) Take a piece of wax paper that’s twice the size of your project, then fold it in half. Open it up and fill one side with torn pieces of tissue paper. When it’s filled and arranged the way you like, fold over the other half of the waxed paper. Place it between two towels and iron until the waxed paper has melted enough to stick together.
4) Glue your black “frame” over the waxed paper/tissue paper and cut away the excess.
5) Tape on a window to add some instant “art” and colour when the sun shines!
