Butterfly Journal Cover

Butterfly Journal

In Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, when a butterfly with two distinctly different wing patterns lands on Lizzy's finger, her father is baffled. But Lizzy simply states that the fairies must have painted it that way. Here's a project that lets kids create unique paper butterflies that are just as bold and beautiful -- and perfect for livening up the cover of a journal or notebook.

You'll need:

  • Notebook with cardboard or paper cover
  • Template for paper butterflies
  • Scissors
  • Craft or scrapbook paper
  • Glue stick
  • Bobby pins (one per butterfly)
  • Small acrylic gems and/or glitter glue (optional)
Instructions:

1. Print out the template and cut out the pieces.

2. For each butterfly, use the template pieces as patterns for cutting a left set of wings out of one shade or pattern of paper and a right set of wings out of a completely different paper. Then cut out wing bases for each set from contrasting shades of plain paper.

Step 2

3. Glue the wing sets onto their respective bases, as shown.

Step 3

4. For each butterfly body, glue a strip of paper around the midsection of a bobby pin, as shown.

Step 4

5. Assemble and glue the butterfly atop the notebook cover.

6. Now your child can embellish the wings with acrylic gems and/or glitter glue, if she likes.
