Butterfly Cut Out Door Dec

This door dec is a clever twist on the gluing cut outs onto paper. Can be done with any picture and match any theme!


Colored Paper

Glitter Glue



Tape or Glue

Template of Shape (any shape can work!)


Cleanly cut out your shape from a square of paper. Tape/Glue a piece of contrasting paper behind the cut out hole. Line  edge with glitter glue. Add name and hang!


  • Pick a simple shape that will be easily recognized without a ton of details.
  • To create a super clean cut, gently fold the paper in half to make the first snip.
