Accordion fold paper butterflies are a simple craft that even kids can make. Spice them up by adding pretty beads or making them from metallic scrapbook paper. These butterflies make super cute, affordable wall decor for a little girl’s bedroom or nursery. They’d also be great for a spring party!
Are you ready to learn how to make your very own paper butterflies?
- scrapbook paper
- assorted beads
- craft wire (thin enough to be easily bendable. I used 24 gauge)
- paper scorer (optional, but it sure makes the project easier!)
Score 1/2 inch parallel lines across the entire paper.
Pinch the center together and wrap tightly with wire. Leave two long ends of wire sticking out the top. These will be the antennas. Add beads if desired.
