Directions to Make Paper Butterfly Art

1. Print off each template and cut out your butterflies for each color. You can save time and paper by printing directly on your colored cardstock.

2. Using a ruler, score two lines in the middle of the butterfly. There should be a rectangle shape inside the middle of the butterfly so that this portion can be glued down to your cardstock.
