Inspired by the art of quilling, I created these butterflies and flowers using simple quilling shapes. This project would a perfect kid project. You can use Elmer's foam glue instead of hot glue to glue the pieces together. You can also insert a stick at the end of body for the butterfly and between a petal for the flower to create a handle for easy holding. Try making these but instead of cutting your strips 1/2 inch, cut them 1/4 inch wide. I hope you like this tutorial and thank you for watching
