  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Self-adhesive gems

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Print the templates and cut them out. Trace them onto the foamie sheets. Cut out the pieces.

  2. Step 2

    Glue tear-shaped pieces to the wings and then glue on the butterfly bodies. Let dry.

  3. Step 3

    Apply the self-adhesive gems.

  4. Step 4

    Snip two wire pieces to about 4 inches. Press one tip of one wire through one foam butterfly (the wire will pass through easily) and into the inside of the basket. Repeat with the other end of the wire. Inside the basket, twist the two ends to secure. Snip wire close the basket. If desired, cover the wire ends with clear packing tape. Repeat with second butterfly.
