You will need

Free butterfly template
Pink card blank
Green & white card
Pink & white floral patterned paper
Seed beads
Silver craft wire
Scalloped scissors
Small circle punch


Step 1
Cut two lengths of craft wire and thread each one with some seed beads. Twist the wire into loops and stick them to the bottom of your card front using strong glue or tape.

Step 2
Cover the bottom of the loopy wire strips with a strip of pink floral patterned paper and a green scalloped border.

Step 3
Use your template to cut four butterfly shapes – two from patterned paper and two from white card. Fold each butterfly shape to make the wings stand out, then decorate the patterned shapes with punched holes. Layer the shapes together to create a pair of fluttery 3D butterflies.

Step 4
Fix the butterflies to your card front with PVA glue, hiding the ends of the wire loops.

Step 5
To finish, add beaded wire antennae to each of your butterflies.
