Instructions

1

Using Array® Card Stock, use the pattern above to cut out Large Yellow Butterfly Wings, and a Large Black Butterfly Body. Glue Large Butterfly Body to Large Butterfly Wings. Decorate with shapes cut out of Array® Card Stock. Set aside to let glue dry.

2

Create Small Butterflies: Cut one set of Small Butterfly Wings out of a Pink Array® Stock and one out of Orange.

3

Use the ¼" hole punch to punch a hole in the top and bottom of each Small Butterfly as shown on the pattern. Take the 5 Blue Beads and glue them to the Pink Butterfly and the 5 Green Beads and glue them to the Orange Butterfly (make sure the top and bottom beads are positioned over the holes you punched. Decorate with shapes cut out of Array® Card Stock. Set aside to let glue dry).

4

Assembling Your Butterfly Mobile: (Make sure all of your pieces are dry). First use the ¼" hole punch to punch a hole in the top and bottom of the Large Butterfly Body. To tie all of your Butterflies together, cut one 10" piece and three 6" pieces out of yarn.

5

Using the 10" piece make a loop off the top of the Large Butterfly for hanging your mobile. Tie the two Small Butterflies, one below the other, to the Large Butterfly with two of the 6" pieces. With the last piece of 6" cording tie one end to the bottom Butterfly, add 6 assorted colored beads and tie a bell to the very end.
