I don’t know about you but, for me, summer is the best season, especially for crafting. Even though we want to spend more time outside, we crafters still find the time to create pretty paper projects. What’s more apt for summer than making a paper butterfly? These butterfly craft ideas are inspired by the scenery we see during those sunny months. There are few things in nature more beautiful than butterflies. They are vibrant and delicate, with the gift of flight that many of us envy.
Because paper is also delicate, it’s appropriate that we should mimic the look butterflies in our paper crafting projects. AllFreePaperCrafts happens to have some amazing summer crafts involving butterflies, and I hope that you take some time to make some of these embellishments, DIY cards, home decor, and perfect party decorations for summer.
