Make a Butterfly

Make a Cabbage White ....... 

I think of every butterfly we make as a voice shouting out in support of libraries .....

personally I find cheap PVA and a brush easier than a glue stick 

Draw round template

Cut out

the creasing gives a delicate, veined effect

I like to use wire for the butterfly body but you can just use a twist of tissue as below

If you leave glue to dry on plastic (cling film is fine) you can peel it away once dry

You don't have to paint markings but you can

Scrunched up bits of tissue are useful for positioning drying butterfly wings

Attach bottom wings to body

...then top

Leave to dry

Antennae are optional .... Wire and paper both work
