Scrap Paper Butterfly

I have a box of scrap paper for the girls to use for art projects, and sometimes they like to use it for scissor practice. I can remember our oldest just sitting and cutting small pieces of paper for long periods of time.  It drove me crazy because the scraps would be everywhere, but it kept her occupied and she learned to control her scissors! This project uses some of those paper scraps to make a butterfly!

1)  Fill a snack or sandwich bag with scraps of cut or torn paper.  Seal the bag and fold the top down.

2)  Twist a pipe cleaner around the middle of the bag.  Form loops for the antenna.

The girls wanted them taped to the mirrors in their bedrooms.
