Tissue Paper Butterflies | DIY Paper Craft Tutorial | Country Hill Cottage


Frilly tissue paper butterflies are a beautiful
decoration for summer and spring! In this quick paper craft DIY, we show an easy technique
to create colourful and elegant butterflies using tissue paper and pipe cleaner. This
project is great for kids, and, combined with paper flowers, you can create gorgeous wall
arrangements. Please subscribe for more tutorials, and turn
on notifications so you don’t miss our latest videos.
To make the wings, cut out 8 squares of tissue paper. You can make the square in various
sizes, a size guide is listed below the video. Use different colours to create gradient effects.
Neatly stack the paper squares so that all edges align and accordion fold the sheets
in 1 ½ centimetre increments, which is approximately half on an inch.
Fold in half and use thin wire or thread to secure the butterfly in the middle. Customise
the wings by cutting the edges of the folds into fringes, rounded or pointed shapes.
Open the butterfly by gently separating the different sheets. Arrange and fluff the wings
to your liking. Fold a piece of pipe cleaner into a V-shape,
and curl the ends around a pencil to form feelers. Twist the bottom of the body once.
Then place the paper wings in the middle and twist the pipe cleaner one more time to secure
the butterfly’s body in place. Use tape or ribbon to hang the butterflies.
