Step 1: Wrap your gift in colorful tissue paper. (I taped on additional strips of orange tissue paper so that my butterfly wings would look more colorful!)

Step 3: Using a craft knife, cut out your butterfly wings. (Remember, you’re only cutting out one wing. You’ll fold back the wing to create a pair of wings.) Vary the size of your butterfly wings to make a more interesting design.

Once you’re finished cutting out your wings, slightly fold them back to make sure that you cut cleanly though the wrapping paper.

Step 4: Wrap your gift. Then, fold back your butterfly wings to reveal your beautiful fluttering butterflies! Use a Sharpie marker to add antenna.
