Paper flower and butterfly!

 Aren't the butterfly and the flower cute? I love how you can make a lot of different cute and pretty things out of a piece of paper! For those of you who's interested in learning how to make these, let me show you a little step by step, let's start with the flower first....
 __________________________________________________________________
The flower is really easy, it's the same steps as the felt flower except I used different papers making it and also the individual flowers are different sizes.

♥♥♥ What I did first is sketched a basic shape flower on different pieces of paper, I also made it different sizes like in the pictures shown below...

this piece of paper is a pink polka dot design like you see on the flower, I sketched the flower on the back so it's much easier to see and cut...

♥♥♥ Next, I cut out the flowers from the papers, and stack them together, you don't have to do exactly what I did, you can do whatever you want to it, but I like to layer mine and I think the more the layer the prettier the flower would look, I put the smallest flower on the top, bent the petals a little bit and topped it with pearl as you can see in the pictures below...

...don't you think it's cute? The special part about it is, you made it yourself! You can actually take pride of it!

♥♥♥ Now it's time for the butterfly, it's very easy too! Ok, this is how I made mine, I picked out a piece of paper that has a lot of colors coz I wanted my butterfly to be colorful, I then turned it to the back side, folded it, along the folded line I drew just half of the butterfly like in the picture shown below...




...the reason I did that so my butterfly will have the same size wings, when you cut it, it will look like in the picture below...




I actually made two of this so I can glue them together, they'll have the same color top and bottom like in the pictures shown below...





After I glued them together, I let it dry and folded it in half and it looked like in the picture below...




I added it to the card that I made before that used to look really plain, the first picture above is the card that I am talking about.

That was easy wasn't it? I hope you all enjoyed the step-by-steps, and I also hope that my English is understandable, and please if there is anything that you don't understand, feel free to comment! Have a great day!
