What makes these fluttery butterflies so vibrant? Magazine photos!

What you'll need

  • Colorful magazine pages
  • Pipe cleaners

How to make it

  1. For each butterfly, choose 2 colorful magazine pages. Cut out 2 squares, one 5 inches on a side, the other 4.

  2. Winged Wonders - Step 2

    Starting at one corner, accordion-fold the squares on their diagonals; our folds were 1/4 inch each.

  3. Winged Wonders - Step 3

    Pinch the center of each folded square. Bend a 12-inch pipe cleaner in half and create a small loop. Arrange the squares in a butterfly shape and center them inside the pipe cleaner.

  4. To secure the wings, twist the pipe cleaner above and below the wings and curl the ends for antennae.
