Kara is my little craft diva. She is always digging around in my craft room, looking for supplies to make one of her designs. We recently came up with the idea to do an ongoing series called "Crafting with Kara". She will share crafts for kids, made by a kid.
The first craft she wants to share is a tissue paper butterfly.
To make a tissue paper butterfly you need the following supplies
To make the body of the butterfly, she started by rolling up the crepe paper
When it was the size that she liked, she secured it with a small piece of tape
She then drew a heart on the folded tissue paper
Then she carefully cut out the heart shape, leaving the folded side intact
She opened up the heart, and it was the perfect shape for butterfly wings
Using small pieces of tape, she secured the wings to the body
To make the antennae, use a piece of pipe cleaner about 6 inches long, forming a small curl on each end
She attached the antennae to the bottom side of the butterfly, and then turned it over
She then rolled the pipe cleaner
on both ends
The finished butterfly
Maybe if she makes a few more, it will start to feel like spring!
