Step 1: Taking A Colorful Sheet Of Paper And Fold It
Take a colored sheet of paper. Now, start this craft activity by folding the colorful paper from the middle. Make sure, both sides are equal and there are no multiple creases.
Step 2: Grab Your Drawing Pencil And Make A Butterfly On The Sheet
After getting the crease, fold the paper. Get hold of your pencil and construct a half-butterfly. Next, take a pair of scissors and carefully cut along the outline of the butterfly, while making sure that the other half of the folded sheet behind, remains unmoved and the cutting that comes out is symmetrical.
Step 3: After Cutting Along The Border Of The Butterfly, Unfold The Sheet
After carefully cutting the silhouette of the half butterfly drawing, unfold it along the crease. Now, it will look like this as shown in the image above. You will observe that it has turned into a full butterfly.
Step 4: Finding The Double Tape And Paste It On The Body Of The Butterfly
Now that you have the butterfly, get a double-sided tape and stick it at the back of the butterfly’s body, in the middle.
Step 5: Punch A Hole In The Lower Middle Part Of The Butterfly
Remember, the double tape is still not stuck. Get the punching machine and punch a hole in the lower, middle part of the butterfly. Grab the straw and make it pass through the hole, not completely though. Only insert a little portion of the straw.
Step 6: Now, Finally Stick The Double Tape After Inserting The Straw
After you have correctly instilled the straw, paste that double-sided tape you stuck, in a previous step. Stick it along with the straw and hold it for a few seconds for it to get the grip and stay intact.
Step 7: Get Another Straw And A Pair Of Scissors To Cut
Take a new straw and a pair of scissors. Start cutting from one side of the straw. Cut it in a way that, that portion is two stems, originating from the center. Do not cut too much, just a little bit. You can take assistance from the reference image above.
Step 8: Now, Take The Previous Straw And Insert It Into The Straw You Have Recently Cut
Now, get back to that straw butterfly that you made a step earlier. Take that and insert in into the straw that you recently have cut from one side in previous step. Remember, the wings will face upwards. Just to be sure and to avoid confusion, take the help of the reference image posted above. It should look exactly like in the referred image.
Step 9: For The Final Step, Take A Cello Tape And Paste It, Just To Ensure Its Grip
You are now just this one step away. Take a piece of cello tape and stick it where the straw and the butterfly are joined. This will keep the grip intact.
And Voila… You Are Done! Beautiful, Right?
Oh, if it is not just absolutely adorable! The colored sheet is really bringing out the colors. It looks elegant yet glamorous, like a much pleasant, more pastel version of all the cool, vibrant colors. After making this, you surely might have come across at least a few new things that you learned. Grabbing your experience from this one, you can experiment making something similar by compiling your own idea, by a similar technique. For starters, you can make other birds, but of course, there is much scope beyond as well.
