Step 3: Bending the Pipe Cleaner Body

Step 3: Bending the Pipe Cleaner
This picture shows the basic bending technique: in each step you are basically bending the pipe cleaner in half and then the halves in half.
After bending once, the closed, rounded end of the pipe cleaner in picture 2/right side forms the head of the butterfly. The open ends (seen on left side of picture 2) become the feet.
This picture explains how to bend the pipe cleaner without inserting the butterfly body. In your final version, the pipe cleaner is folded around the butterfly body in step 2. But practice bending the pipe cleaner and getting an idea of which side is head/feet before you do the final assembly.
