How to make a butterfly Valentine

Download the Butterfly Valentine, print on colored card-stock, cut out, make slits for the sucker, add some decorations (cut out shapes of paper, stickers, glitter, etc.), insert sucker and then add some wiggly eyes to the top of the sucker.  You could even add a small piece of pipe cleaner for the antenna.

    These are so cute! I would love to give them as a thank you to my daughter's little birthday guests. I would have to change the text then. Would you mind sharing the design file?

    My 8 yr old daughter has a youtube channel and we used this awesome craft for her Valentines Day Craft video. Thought you might like to have a look! :) (we linked your blog in the description)

    Blessings! Have a great day!

    Can you share the design file with me? I would like to print on colored card stock but in the current format the white inner border will appear. If possible I would like to separate the layers.

    Thanks so much! Super cute and weren't hard too make. My wiggly eyes kept coming off when I glued them on! What did everyone else do to keep those from falling off so I can use them again in the future?

      We used Elmer's glue and they seem to make it all okay to school.

    Thank you so much for this adorable printable! My only suggestion is to take off the pink border. While it looks cute, it is such a waste of precious ink. We're very happy with the butterflies though. :)

    You can fit four to a page but you have to cut them out and scan them. Worked fine for me and saved lots of card stock. My problem is getting the lolli-pops in without tearing the paper. Think I need to cut my slits bigger... Cute craft. My [pre-k] daughter is super excited to decorate them.

    Arg, I hate waisting ink and on my new computer the programs don't just let me delete the unnecessary and fit as many butterflies on a a page as possible, you could probably fit at least 3 on a page without the writing! Tried for an hour, now just resigning to waste my pretty paper and ink cause I want this! It's cute, but could be more practical!

    Great craft. To avoid the extra lines when printing, right click on the image, then select save. This will download it in Adobe on your desktop; print from there no problem.

    Very cute idea. Occasionally when I see cute things like this it makes me want to teach younger grades :) I'm sure I could do this with my grade 8s with some success too though. hrmmm...
