How a Butterfly Craft Works

Crafts like this butterfly craft from Craftsy, a Chicago-based crafts website, are fun, but they don’t come cheap.

But with the help of a coupon code, you can get a piece of cake for as little as $3.50.

It’s a great gift for a mother or daughter, who just wants to show off some new crafts.

“It’s a very unique gift for your daughter,” says Liz Krieger, a senior editor at Craftsy.

“You’re getting a piece that she can hang on the wall and it’s a little bit of her imagination, a little thing.”

Craftsy sells the Butterfly Maker, a handmade butterfly, in three colors.

The Butterfly Maker can be made of any material, including cotton, linen or linen-draped paper.

And the maker is made with a special adhesive to make it durable.

But when the butterfly is assembled and cut, the process can take about 15 minutes.

The cost: $3,539.95 from

But that’s just for the butterfly.

For a piece like the Butterfly Maker, Krieberg says, “You could make a whole butterfly of these in less than an hour.”

Here’s how you make your own.

For the Butterfly: Wrap a piece from a different size and cut it into the size of a quarter.

Then cut the remaining piece into half.

Now, place the half butterfly onto a flat baking sheet.

Set aside to cool.

Next, take a sharp knife and slice the half of the butterfly that’s in your cut and set aside.

Take the half from the Butterfly maker, and cut that into quarters.

Place the half onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and set the parchment aside to set.

Next take the scissors and cut the half into quarters, leaving a small hole at the top.

Place that hole on the parchment paper.

Take your leftover half of butterfly and place it on top of the parchment.

Set the parchment away from the paper.

Next remove the butterfly from the baking sheet by pulling it off the baking sheets.

This will make the hole.

Now take your scissors and trim the half off the butterfly with your fingers.

This is how the butterfly should look like once the butterfly has been cut.

Put the butterfly back on the baking paper.

Now place the parchment back in the oven to bake for 30 minutes, then remove the paper and let the butterfly cool completely.
