These butterflies are based on the great youtube video by Arvind Gupta (http://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=cE0lp339rFY)
You will need:
- Coloured paper
- Tissue paper
The template is here: flapping butterfly Cut along the solid line on the template, so you have a square
Fold along the dotted line marked fold 1 and unfold
Fold along the dotted line marked fold 2
Then fold along the lines marked fold 3 and fold 4. These folds are made upwards towards fold 2
Fold in half along fold 1. You should now see the solid lines on the template for the butterfly wings. Cut these out
Using the little diagram on the template. Cut out the head and antennae.
Holding the join of fold 3 and fold 4, gently pull and watch the butterfly flap.
Decorate the butterfly with tissue paper! Remember butterflies are symmetrical, so you will need to cut two shapes!
