Bayla's First Craft Tutorial: How to Make a Butterfly Present

My five-year-old Bayla has a developing understanding of the world of blogging...enough to create a project, and then request that I put it "on blog" so other people can learn how to make it, too!  When she made a special craft yesterday with supplies from my dear friend Mindy, I agreed to share her latest creation, complete with materials and steps.

In order to make your very own Butterfly Present, you will need the following:
+ A big pink pom pom
+ A small piece of chenille stem
+ Two golden brads
+ Two brown foam triangles
+ Two Q-tips
+ An egg carton
+ A ribbon
And here are the steps:
1.  Glue the piece of chenille stem to the pom pom for a mouth.  (Use the photo above as a guide.)
2.  Tuck in the golden brads to the pom pom for eyes.
3.  Glue the brown foam triangles to the pom pom for wings.
4.  Glue the Q-tips to the pom pom for antennae.
5.  Cut an egg carton in half.
6.  Put the butterfly in the egg carton and close it up.
7.  Tie the ribbon around the egg carton and make a bow.

Bayla made this present for her daddy, and Katy followed her directions to make a Pom Pom Butterfly, too.  The girls hope you will try this craft with your favorite kid soon! 

I know the girls would love to hear from you in the comments...what do you think of Bayla's first craft tutorial?

So Bayla, what happens to the eggs that are originally in the carton when you buy it? Do we have to eat them for breakfast or make cupcakes or brownies? I want to hear about the eggs. Tell me more. Thank you for sharing such a cute idea!

That idea of making the antennae out of Qtips is BRILLIANT!

This is one of the best ideas I've seen in a long time. I just know people in my life will love opening these little packages. Thank you, Bayla!
