Butterfly Prints


She didn't quite have the hand strength to cut very many, but she wanted to try.

From time to time I like to break out the supplies and work on a craft with Katie.  We don't do it often enough, so it's a big treat!  Today was no exception.  :)  And I brought out all new tools that she'd never really used before.  Want to try this too?  Here's what you'll need!

  • Already finished artwork (We used some finger paintings that I kept shuffling around.  Any printed paper would work though.)
  • Butterfly punch (Again, any kind of decorative punch would work.  We just like butterflies!)
  • Scrapbook paper trimmed to size
  • Glue Stick
  • Frames
STEP 1:  Punch out LOTS of butterflies!

STEP 2:  Start gluing them to your paper.  Glue stick works great for this as it dries super fast.

STEP 3:  Place your new artwork in frames and hang up!
