Have you been inspired by The Butterfly Project? Would you like to help? You can!
Butterflies are very easy to make in either crochet or origami. Please stick to the basic instructions, although feel free to use any yarn or origami paper you like. Do not attach any decorations such as beads. The finished product should be no larger than 3-4″ across maximum. Links to the instructions are below.
There is a link below to the tags. Please print them exactly as they are, making no changes. If your printer does not print on both sides, print page one, flip the printed pages over to run through the printer again and then print page two. Use a heavier paper like card stock. Punch holes in the tags where the x’s are, and use a length of yarn or ribbon about 8″ long to attach the butterfly to it. If you opt to crochet your butterflies, weave the yarn in stitches at the end of one wing, go in through stitches at the top of the body and again at the opposite wing like in the picture below to help your butterfly lay flat.
Once your butterflies are made and tags attached, please pray for the people who receive your butterflies however you feel God is leading you. Then, leave them where you feel they will be found easily by those who need them. I have left mine in restaurants, stores and parks.
