How do you make a toilet roll butterfly?
First you need to gather a few supplies:
If you like to craft with toilet paper rolls, you may like to try these.
You will need double sided tape to fix the butterflies on the wall, this one is the best option as it won’t damage the wall and it’s material will hold well the butterflies.
Start by painting the cardboard rolls, in and out. I choose to work with pastel colors. Feel free to use any colors that match your decoration or your mood.

Pess the toilet roll flat and cut it into slices. In one roll you can make one large and one small butterfly.
Try to cut 8 pieces out of the roll.

Press to make the butterfly body.
Glue two pieces on one side of the body to make a first wing.
Repeat on the other side to make the second wing.
And done! It´s that easy to make a butterfly out of a toilet paper roll.
