Book Crafts: Butterfly Gift Tag

 
Butterfly Gift Tag
 
 
You will need:
 
Pages from a book proof
Marker/pencil
Wire
Wire cutters
Scissors
Double-sided tape
Scissors
Gift tag (or make your own using a template and card)
Ribbon
 
 
 You can use a ready-made gift tag or make your own. I made my own using a gift tag template and some cream-coloured handmade paper, which I lined with white card to give it stability and a smooth surface for writing a message on the back.
 
Layer four pieces of book proof pages and draw a basic butterfly shape, bearing in mind the size of your gift tag. Cut out the butterfly shapes.
 
 
To make the butterfly's body, cut a length of wire using wire cutters and bend it in half, leaving a rounded end and twisting in the middle.
 
Use the wire cutters to bend down the ends and curl into small loops to form the antennae, snipping off the excess.
 
Using small strips of double-sided tape, stick the body to one of the paper butterfly shapes.
 
 
Using more small strips of double-sided tape, layer the rest of the paper butterfly shapes. Carefully bend the wings towards the middle of the butterfly to create a feeling of movement.
 
 
Using double-sided tape, attach the butterfly to your gift tag and add some ribbon to complete.
 
 
And there you have it - your butterfly gift tag!
