I have two snuggly little boys. They love tickles and kisses. All kinds of kisses – kisses on their foreheads, Eskimo Kisses, and Butterfly Kisses. I thought it would be fun to make actual butterfly kisses. These are simple to make, and I even have a printable template for the butterflies, if you don’t want to draw your own.
Butterflies printed on Cardstock (or you could draw your own)
Mechanical Pencil & Ruler
Cut out the butterflies. Score the line between the wing and the body of the butterfly. An easy way to score is to use a mechanical pencil with the lead tucked in, and a ruler.
Apply some lipstick and start kissing… the paper. I found that I got the best placement when I used a mirror, held the paper up to my face, then pressed it to my puckered up lips.
It might take a couple practice kisses to get it right… just re-apply lipstick between each imprint.
Once you have all your kisses in place, grab a pen and start doodling in the white space. Add wording, lots of hearts, or Xs and Os.
Fill it as much or as little as you like. Don’t worry about the two sides being perfectly balanced.
Once you have the white space as filled in as you like, fold a pipecleaner in half. Tuck the body of the butterfly into the fold, then twist the pipecleaner at the top of the body.
Fold down each of the antennae and twist them in place.
If you like, add kisses to the back (underside) of the wings as well.
