The best gifts are handmade ones, especially when it comes to greeting cards! If your kid has mastered spelling a bit, you can create a beautiful butterfly card craft. It will become a special present for their mom, grandmom, or sister. The craft is quite easy to make – it takes up to 20-25 minutes with decoration.
- colored paper (purple, silver, pink);
- glue stick;
- liquid glitter;
- accessories for decoration (optional).
Choose anything you want for decoration – make your butterfly unique.
Cut out the foundation for the card: it must be a rectangle (11 in x 5.5 in) that you will bend. Check the example:
Now, cut out smaller rectangles of silver paper. Those will serve as the background for your butterfly:
Offer your kid to draw a half of a butterfly: its wings can be of any shape and size. Once you cut out one half, create the second one. The foundation of your butterfly is ready. You can stick the halves on the silver parts.
Here comes the most interesting part – decoration! I won’t leave any guidelines: your kid is free to fantasize and create! Use glitter, stickers, crystals and anything you want to make your butterfly unique and splendid. Alice made a butterfly card craft for her grandma’s B-day and decided to use pearls.
Don’t forget to sign the card: let your little one write their first sweet words and compliments.
We would be glad to see how you implement this idea. Leave the photos of your handmade crafts in the comments 🙂
