What makes these fluttery butterflies so vibrant? Magazine photos!
Colorful magazine pages
1. For each butterfly, choose 2 colorful magazine pages. Cut out 2 squares, one 5 inches on a side, the other 4.
2. Starting at one corner, accordion-fold the squares on their diagonals; try folds of about one-fourth inch each.
3. Pinch the center of each folded square. Bend a 12-inch pipe cleaner in half and create a small loop. Arrange the squares in a butterfly shape and center them inside the pipe cleaner.
4. To secure the wings, twist the pipe cleaner above and below the wings and curl the ends for antennae.
