DIY Printable Butterfly Valentines

Make your own Butterflies for Valentine's Day

If you want something quick, easy and inexpensive for your child to make for Valentine's Day, this is the DIY project for you.

I thought these were a cute idea for a child to make to take to school for Valentine's Day. It is fun, easy, personalized and inexpensive!

What you will need:
  • Colored Paper
  • Scissors
  • Suckers (of your choice)
  • Tape
  • Stickers (Optional)
  • Wiggly Eyes (Optional)
  • Marker

You will need to download this free butterfly template.

After you print your template onto your colored paper, cut them out around the lines.
On the template you will see two marks in the middle. Fold your butterfly template over evenly and make slots for your sucker with your scissors on each mark. 

After you have made the slots, unfold template and insert your sucker.

 Now it's time to decorate your Butterfly Valentine! Put your wiggly eyes on the sucker and place stickers or use a marker to draw on the butterfly wings with any decorations of your child's choice. Place a piece of tape on the back of the butterfly where the sucker goes through the template. This just keeps the sucker secure. 

You can write To:  From: on your Butterfly Valentine to make it a personalized treat for each of the children in your child's class.

Have fun decorating!!
