I have some cute butterflies for you today! Let’s make some hanging decorations for spring, using my butterfly SVG! These hanging butterflies are great for decorating your kids parties or hanging in a baby nursery. I designed this paper butterfly with a hole at the top so you can pull a string through, perfect for creating ceiling hangers or banners.
Here are a few supplies you will need to create your hanging butterfly decorations! Check out my Hanging Cricut Butterfly Video Tutorial below!
- Cricut Machine
- Hanging Butterfly SVG
- Bearly Art Craft Glue
- Fishing Wire Clear
- Scoring Stylus
My Cricut paper butterfly SVG is sized at 4 inches in width, but can be resized in Design Space to your preference. The SVG will come with 2 butterflies which makes one hanging butterfly. You can duplicate the set to cut up to 6 to a page.
When you upload the SVG to Design Space, make sure to check the size or resize if needed. Change each cut lines to score lines and attach it to the butterfly shape underneath. Cut on Cardstock+ for 65lb cardstock.
Next, fold over the score lines using a straight edge.
Use the craft glue to stick the butterfly body together matching it up.
Cut a piece of fishing wire through the whole and tie a double knot. Make sure the knot is tied at the top of the butterfly head for balance.
Now you’re ready to hang your easy-but-beautiful paper butterfly decorations! Create more with different colored cardstocks, foil cardstock or glitter cardstock.
These paper butterflies look cute even on the table top for a cute spring accent. I hope you enjoy my Cricut Butterfly SVG.
