    I found a work-around for the lines. Convert this doc to a pdf. (I use the program PDF reDirect) Once you have it in a PDF file then you should be able to print without the lines. :) It worked for me...hope it does for you too!

    Thank you for a great Valentine's craft. My daughter and I made some for her class. They're really cute. :)

    For those that are experiencing the issue with the lines showing up, we had the same problem with our Windows PC, but when we printed the template from our Mac (using the same printer) the lines were no longer there.

    Hope this is helpful.

    I'm having the same problem with the butterfly having lines. When I print out the butterfly page, there are lines crossing the middle. They don't show up when you just view the PDF, but they do once it's printed.

    Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but
    I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Cheers!

    Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this
    blog loading? I'm trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it's
    the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Very cute! However - I printed these and there are lines that run from one wing to another, even through the printed words. It makes sort of a diamond shape in the body of the butterfly. The line is as light as the lines that you are supposed to use to cut on. Is there a fix to this?

    When I first started printing these I had trouble with the lines going through the butterflies. I had to right click and save it and open it with a different program. I used Adobe Element but I'm guessing you could use paint or something else. Hopefully this helps!

    HELP, Having the same problem with the butterfly valentines, when I go to print it comes with the extra lines on the butterflies. What am I doing wrong? Really excited to make these.
  31. Saturday, February 4th, 2012
    I'm seeing this a few years later, but it is so adorable! What about the saying: Valentine, You Make My Heart Flutter
  32. Saturday, February 4th, 2012

    I am having an issue printing them. When I print it out, it comes with the lines that would be the bottom of the hearts and goes right through the writing and design. Any ideas on how to remedy this? It's a great design and we're excited to use it for our valentine's!
  36. Friday, February 11th, 2011

    you should have a poinsettias printable for christmas, it would be a really cute thing to use instead of christmas cards! I love these!

    So I loved this idea, but we used pencils instead of lollipops.
    check it out if you want!
    Thanks for all the awesome ideas!

    Wednesday, February 11th, 2009
    Thanks so much for posting these ideas! My 1st grade daughter made the butterflies and my 4th grade son made the whirligigs. Perfect for both personalities! Thanks for the creativity -- we had a fun craft evening getting them all ready for school!
  51. Tuesday, February 10th, 2009
    My 5 year old liked these butterflies, so we printed out a batch (his are lime green and sky blue, though :^). Thank you so much for posting them! But I'm having a really hard time getting the lollipop sticks through the slits! I wish we could find our missing hold punch, that would make it easier. I'm using heavyweight inkjet paper, which is similar in weight to store-bought valentines but a bear to deal with in this situation.
  52. Monday, February 9th, 2009
    a creative idea for valentine's gift and I used it! Thanks so lots!!!!=D I like your blog!
  53. Sunday, February 8th, 2009
