Butterfly Ribbons

Step 1: Cut two pieces of ribbon 8.5 inches and two pieces 6.5 inches.

Step 2: Line a hair clip with ribbon. Then take your 8.5 inch piece of ribbon and fold it in half. Pinch it in the middle and that way you know where the center of the ribbon is. Hot glue the center of the ribbon to the hair clip.

Step 3: Take the ends of the ribbon and loop them around and glue them down. So that’s the top half of your butterfly.

Step 4: Now do the same thing to make the bottom half of your butterfly with the 6.5 inch piece of ribbon.

Step 5: Now take your sheer pieces of ribbon and glue them over the top of the other ribbon using the same method. Now it looks more like wings of a butterfly.

Step 6: Now let’s make the body. Take about 6" of ribbon and wrap it around a pencil or you can just twist it. Cut to size. Wire ribbon helps it stay in place. Dab a little glue and place it in the center. 

Step 7: The very last step is to make antennas. Cut off a one inch piece of ribbon and then cut the edges off. Put some regular glue on your fingers and twist the ribbon edges and bend for the antenna. The glue dries and keeps the bend in the ribbon. Glue them on to the top of your clip and your all done!
