The Zen of Paper Butterflies

Sometimes all it takes to calm the inner storms is a trip back to simplicity by focusing on the gentler side of life. There is wonder and a sense of complete presence in watching a butterfly fluttering it's way around a field of wild flowers.

As a nice prelude to spring, I thought a craft project on creating a paper butterfly might be good to lift the spirits. Home Made Simple offers a paper butterfly template you can use to create dimensional butterflies like the ones pictured below easily and simply.
