Making a Paper Butterfly Puppet

Today, I'm making a fun craft for my son and his two cousins. They love it when I make paper toys for them. I'm glad I can make them smile with simple handmade toys.



  1. Draw a butterfly pattern on a piece of paper, including the body, head, and wings.
  2. Cut out these patterns.
  3. Trace the patterns onto preferred colored cardstock.
  4. Cut them out. Make two pieces from each pattern.
  5. Take one oval and one circle for the head and body and glue them together.
  6. Cut out two small strips of different colored paper, about 1 inch or less. Fold into zigzags.
  7. Glue the tips onto the head for the antennae.
  8. Cut out six longer strips about 1 and 1/2 inches and fold into zigzags.
  9. Glue 3 on each side of the body. Set aside.
  10. Take another set of the body and head assembly. Stick the wings onto it.
  11. Cut out thin strips and arrange them on the body.
  12. Add the other details to the wings.
  13. Cut a long two inch wide strip of cardstock.
  14. Glue both ends on the two sides of the first body. See photo.
  15. Now, stick the two sets together.
  16. Draw a face on the head.
  17. Insert your hand in the handle under the body of your butterfly.
  18. Move your hand up and down to flap its wings.
