Step 2: Cut Out the Butterflies Using a Template

(Click on picture to enlarge & print)
Step 2: Enlarge these templates and cut out. The largest butterfly pictured on the bottom is about 5 1/2" across. The green-black butterfly is about 5", the red butterfly is about 4 1/2 " across.
Or: use your own paper and cut out your own design. For one butterfly you will cut out two exact copies for the top and bottom. Glue top and bottom together. Curl wing tips while the glue is wet (up or down, depending on the effect you desire.)
Cutting is easiest if you fold the paper in half and cut both wings so they are precisely the same.
