    • Print out the templates and ask a grown-up to carefully cut out the butterfly shape – inside the wings as well as outside.
    • Take your coloured sweetie wrappers and trim them to fit each section of the wings and body.
    • Glue around each shape on the white side of the butterfly and stick your trimmed wrappers to it.
    • Keep going until you’ve filled in each section.

  • When the glue has dried, use the sticky tack to stick your colourful butterfly to a sunny window and see how bright and cheerful it looks!

TIP: When the sun is out, look for where the shadow of your butterflies fall for an extra pretty colourful surprise!

We hope you have great fun making these!
Love and magic dust from the Magic Belles!
