How To Make A Tissue Paper Butterfly
Gather all your supplies and grab a seat at your table. Start with the tissue paper. Unfold you sheets and start cutting rectangles out. They can be any size you’d like. My tissue paper lengths were about 6 inches across. Double over you tissue paper so that each rectangle has 2 sheets of the same color paper making it 2-ply.
Next, take 4 sheets (2 of one color and 2 of a different color) and lay them on top of each other. Pinch the middle of the sheet of paper together in the middle.
Once you have your paper pinched together, take one of your piper cleaners and wrap it around the middle twisting once or twice at the top of the butterfly.
You can either leave the antenna straight or twist around your finger to make a corkscrew shape. After you have the piper cleaner antenna fixed, fluff our tissue paper wings a bit and you’re done! You have made fun little butterflies that your children will adore!
