Printable kid's crafts - butterflies

These butterflies can be printed out and used in various craft activities. Click on the small butterflies to see the larger version. If you are going to use the butterflies on another website, please send a link back to this site as acknowledgement, although some restrictions apply. Some ideas include:

  • Greeting cards
  • Party invitations
  • Butterfly decoupage
  • Scrapbooking
  • Fairy wings
  • As a texture in 3D modelling (Lightwave, 3D Studio, Blender etc)
  • You can use thin wire, curled at the ends for antennae instead of the printed antennae. Some craft stores stock pre-made antennae for this purpose.
  • Printed or photocopied onto transparent paper, the butterflies can be folded in the center and hung as a mobile or stuck to the glass of a window.
  • Transparent butterflies look wonderful attached to the front of a greeting card, with a little sliver of card under their body section to add a 3d effect.
  • They can be used to decorate websites like FaceBook pages
  • or as forum avatars (scaled to size of course)
