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|
|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|
Leave to dry
|Antennae are optional .... Wire and paper both work|
