You will need:

  1. Paints and ink
  2. Paper
  3. Scissors
  4. Glue
  5. Butterfly Craft Punch
  6. Frames


Part of our creative consultations are to create artwork with children for their rooms. Firstly we used watercolours to create a subtle orange background.  We cut it to fit over the frame, to form a background.

To create the effect on the butterflies, we followed the same procedure of washing the paper with watercolours and ink.

We then folded the paper in half and drew half of the butterfly. We then cut out the butterflies in various sizes.

Using glue we stuck the middle (leaving the wings up) of the butterfly to the background we created. Its good to use contrasting colours so the butterflies will stand out from the background.

We also experimented with various sizes. We used a butterfly craft punch to make the small butterflies and as a guide to drawing the larger ones.

We then put the butteries into frames.
