Colorful Butterflies

I think these butterflies turns out great. They are so prettyand colorful.
We used: Toilet paper roll, tissue paper (cut into squares), glue, clear contact paper, eyes, a chenille stem, 2 small pom-poms and a paint brush.

I watered the glue down to make it easier to spread on the tissue paper. Place the tissue paper on the roll and paint on the glue over the top.

Place contact paper sticky side up, put tissue squares on the contact paper. Place another piece of contact paper on top. Cut the contact paper into the shape of butterfly wings.
Glue the wings on to the roll. Bend the chenille stem in half, glue pom-poms to the ends, Glue the chenille stem antennae to the inside of the front of the roll. Add eyes and mouth.
