Butterfly Door Dec
(Samantha Cassell)


Colored Paper

Hole Punch




Butterfly Template


Each door dec has 4 parts: the colorful back, the two colorful wings, and the white body portion (see the attached template for shapes). Cut out each of the parts, hole punch a few holes into the wings to give it a pattern, and glue it all together!

So many colors!

So many colors!


  • Make sure when you cut out the wing portions, you flip the template over so you get one of each side. Theoretically they should be the same, but this makes up for small imperfections!
  • Cutting takes a long time. Get comfy scissors.
