How to make ‘Come fly with me’ wall art

By posted on March 2, 2018 9:43AM

I tried to create an ombre effect using cream colored paper for the bottom butterflies and slowly getting brighter as it went up. Towards the top, you can’t really tell because really there aren’t that many shades of yellow

It took me a little less than 2 hours to get these all cut and hung. Just use regular scotch tape to secure to your walls. That makes it super easy to adjust as needed….and that’s good with us undecideds who like to change things up a bit.

I’m sharing the template with you just in case you want to make some too. Here’s what you need:

wall art

Various scrapbook paper in colors of your choice

Scissors

Butterfly Template HERE

Pencil or sharpie

2 paper clips

wall art

Print out the butterfly template and fold it right along the line

Unfold to reveal the entire pattern

I made the template just the right size so you can fit 4 butterflies on one sheet of large scrapbook paper

On the BACKSIDE of the paper, make a mark right in the center of the butterflies body. This is your folding point.

Fold the paper, right sides together precisely along that line. The easiest way to do that is to get the vertical edge straight and then press down right on the line. Your paper and your crease should be straight

Paperclip the half template onto the paper. Cut away!

Easy as that!

Keep going until you are done with all your butterflies. I suggest cutting and then placing 4 or 5 at a time. I ended up cutting about 10 too many, but we may still use them in her bathroom

Here’s the cutting graveyard…

Just use a bit of rolled scotch tape and stick to the wall. Get creative and have them wind around doorways, onto ceilings…whatever you feel like!
