Take first color paper place and make a mark about 16 cm up from the bottom edge and 1 cm in from the side edge. Now on second color paper repeat the marks and lines with 18 cm instead of 16 cm and draw a straight line down from each mark to the bottom edge, giving you two evenly spaced lines that are the same length.
Now take black paper and make strips of a width of half a centimeter and a length of only 6 cm for antennas.
Cut out each of your six strips! Starting with first colour, apply glue to each end of your first strip, on the same side for both. Turn your ends in towards each other so that the outside bits that you applied glue to meet and stick them together. Repeat the process for your second blue strip too, so you’ll have two blue hearts in total.
Repeat the same steps with yellow color to make up your wings. Attach your body and wings!
Curl the tops of your antenna strips to make them round off the way an actual butterfly’s antennae appear to arc. Next, bend the other end of each upwards slight to make a sort of flat tab for gluing. Apply the glue to the underside of this bent tab and press it onto the top of one of your body hearts so the antennae stick up and curl over at the top.
