The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Die-cut the Album w/Tabs in different colors of cardstock for each Tab. Label each Tab with a metamorphosis stage.
  2. Die-cut the Album front and back covers from white chipboard.
  3. Die-cut the Album pages for writing and drawing from lined and plain paper.
  4. Use the plastic spiral bird leg bands to bind the report. Plastic spiral bird leg bands may be purchased at feed stores or are available online at www.qcsupply.com.
  5. Die-cut four or five Butterflies from craft foam. Align and layer the Butterflies, and adhere them together with double-sided tape. This will make a comfortable stamp for students to hold.
  6. Coat the Butterfly with different colors of paint for shading, and stamp onto the report cover. (Using paint allows for shading, as a stamp pad produces only one color.)
  7. This stamping technique can be used with any die shape (Main Photo).
