Laminated Butterflies an excellent way to hang and preserve your child’s artwork.


  • 1 A4 Coloured Paper
  • 1 Set Of Paints
  • 1 Pipe Cleaner
  • 1 Optional Hole Punch
  • 1 A4 Laminator Sheet
  • 1 Laminator


  1. Fold Your paper in half , unfold it.
  2. Down the middle of the paper in the crease place some blobs of paint.
  3. Fold over your paper and spread the paint out to the edges while folded. When you open the paper you will have a butterfly shape.
  4. Allow the paint to dry. Laminate your paper then cut around the edges of your butterfly shape.
  5. Pierce a whole in the top of each wing or head if you have one. Alternatively use a hold puncher. Thread your pipe cleaner though.
