How to Make a Butterfly Mother’s Day Card
A good card doesn’t have to be complicated – this butterfly design is so easy to make, yet looks so effective. It’s as quick as going to buy one from the shops, and much more personal!
Skill Level: Beginner
Time to Make: 30 minutes
- Fine Black Pen
1. Print off and cut out the butterfly template. Take a sheet of ‘Folk Song’ creative paper and fold it in half making a fold line. Place the butterfly template along the fold line and draw around it twice, to make two butterflies. Cut out both butterflies using a sharp pair of scissors.
2. Use a pencil to draw a swirling butterfly trail and Mother’s Day message onto a blank card. When you are happy with it, draw over the pencil with a fine black pen. Rub out the pencil markings.
3. Arrange and glue one of the paper butterflies to the top of the swirling trail. Add a fine line of glue to the centre of this butterfly and stick the second butterfly on top. When the glue is dry, fold up the wings of the top butterfly to give a 3D effect.
4. Use the fine black pen to draw the butterfly antenna. Stick on 3mm gems for the ends of each antenna. Add one more gem to the end of the swirling butterfly trail.
