Suncatcher Butterflies

This is an oldie but a goodie and another oh so easy craft for any age. You can also turn it into Suncatcher 'anything' they don't need to be butterflies.

All you need is:

Clear Contact Paper
Tissue Paper
Pipe Cleaner

Step 1: Lay out clear contact and place pieces of coloured tissue paper on to sticcy side of contact. You can also add glitter and other sprkly things if you wish.

Step 2: Cover with a second piece of clear contact paper so that the tissue paper is now 'stuck' between the contact.

Step 3: Draw a rough outline of your butterfly (or other design) if you wish. You can always just cut free hand. We used a dry erase marker so the outline could easily be wiped away.

Step 4:
Cut around the outline.

Step 5: Twist a pipe cleaner around the middle of the butterfly to form the body and the antenna.

The butterfly can be stuck directly to the window, hung from the ceiling or a mobile or as in our case a diorama.

Very pretty - now I see a good use for that type of pipe cleaner! And I like the idea of using dry erase markers - hadn't thought of that...
