How to Cut a Butterfly from Postcard Paper
From the magazine sheet, we cut out two squares. Let the first be large, and the second smaller. We cut out two more strips, one longer, and the other shorter. The resulting squares are the wings for our future butterfly. We form a triangle by folding the square in half. Now we will carefully fold it into the accordion, starting from the middle. First we add a triangle from the middle to one end, and then to the other. In the end, we have an accordion of two squares.
Next, add our magazine stripes inrepeatedly. Literally, more voluminous stripes are formed before our eyes. Connecting the two resulting squares, we wrap them with a small strip, pre-greased with glue. Now it's time to take a long strip. Using the handle, we twist the tips and glue the resulting antennae to the body. Now you just have to spread your wings. One stroke - and the butterfly flew!
Such butterflies you can use to decorate various greeting cards, albums, photo frames. Dare, and you will always succeed!
