Yesterday I saw these fantastic leaf butterflies on Crafty Crow. I knew I wanted to make some with Clara, but gluing seemed a bit messy. Enter the contact paper! We love contact paper. We already had a bunch of leaves in the house (mostly from the Costco parking lot, of all places) and we already had the contact paper. All I needed was a little girl who loves to cut things. Check!
First we cut the leaves up the center spine to make wings. Then we cut apart some more leaves to make the body and we decided that the stems would make perfect antennae. And legs for the caterpillar. We stuck the butterflies and caterpillar to the contact paper and then added another layer of contact paper over top and cut them out.
