Concertina Paper Butterfly
May 23rd, 2012 by Craftylocks

Who would have thought that a chenille stick and couple of pieces of paper could look so beautiful. This craft requires little effort yet looks FANtastic when completed. You can use already decorated paper like scrap-booking paper. They look better if you put the stronger pattern or color on the bottom. You could also use pages from magazines or children’s paintings.

Fold the piece of paper that you have selected to use as the top wings of the butterfly in a concertina. Fold the second piece of paper in the same way but make the folds only 2/3 as wide.
Fold both wings in half and then cut to shape.
Fasten the wings together by twisting a chenille stick around them both.
