Cut your butterfly wing base from cardboard. I drew one side of the butterfly, cut it out, folded it over and traced around it to make the other side of the butterfly.
Paint your butterfly wings and then add add elastic arm straps securing the elastic in place with tape.
Cut out pairs of shapes from your painted cardboard to decorate your wings.
Arrange your painted shapes and glue them into position and your wings are finished.
