Layered Butterflies Free SVG Cut Files

Hey Crafters, today I’m going to show you how I made these cute butterflies for my daughter’s 4th birthday! I designed a giant butterfly that is 13.5 inches wide and each wing will fit on an 8.5×11 sheet of cardstock.  I also made small butterflies, that are 3 different sizes, 5.5″, 4″ and a 2.75″.  Although you can resize them to any size you need. My Butterfly SVG Bundle is great for you to make for your family parties, baby nursery or fun kids projects, which also comes with a commercial license if you wish to sell the finished butterflies!

For my color choice I choose to go with pastels for the butterfly base and chrome gold for the top layer.  However you can make these whatever colors you like.  I just recommend 65lb cardstock.

I’m going to show you how to make the giant butterfly SVG which is 13.5 inches wide. You will need 2 sheets of the pastel color and 2 sheets of chrome gold.  So let’s get started.

Here are a few supplies you will need:

After you upload my SVG file to design space, all you need to do is change the colors and click MAKE IT.  And cut on CARDSTOCK+.

After everything is cut out you should have 4 pieces that look like this (below image).

Next, we are going to fold the tabs on each wing upwards. I use a straight edge to help with the smooth line.

Now we can glue the matching wings together to make a butterfly. You this with the gold layer and colored layer.

Next, glue the top layer butterfly to the bottom layer, by apply glue down the center of the butterfly.
