List down this easy to make Butterfly Fridge Magnet in your kid’s Summer Holiday craft-to-do-list (more kid’s craft over here). It is quick to make and the butterfly came out so beautiful.
Besides making the butterfly into a fridge magnet, you can glue it to other attachment as an ornament, eg: on a photo frame, on the paperweight, on a keychain, on pencil topper, you can even frame it up and hang on the wall as decor by itself too.
My 6-year-old son attended a holiday art camp during a short school term-break. He came back with this beautiful butterfly which he learned from the teacher. He was super excited and told me that he wanted me to share it in Craft Passion so that others can do it too, how sweet he is!!!
So here it is, the tutorial of making these Butterfly Fridge Magnets by using simple materials such as cardstock, craft/ice cream stick, pom-poms, chenille stem, googly eyes, and quick-dry glue.
Besides sharing the tutorial here, we made lots of butterfly fridge magnets during the weekend and gave away to friends and family. We were greeted with happy faces and smiles from the receivers, this cheers up our lives instantly!!!
Wish you have a lovely day always!!!
