The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
- Fold seven different colors of construction paper in half.
- Slide each of the folded papers up to just below the top of the Butterfly wings, leaving the blade exposed, and cut.
- Using the same colors of paper, die-cut seven whole Butterflies.
- Randomly punch holes in a few of the whole Butterflies, and adhere over a folded Butterfly in a contrasting color. This will allow the contrasting color to show through when adhered to the folded Butterfly.
- Cut strips from a few of the other whole Butterflies, and adhere the strips to the folded Butterflies in contrasting colors.
- Make sure each folded Butterfly has a top of a whole Butterfly that will cover the folded edge of the wings.
- Die-cut the Boss-O! Alphabet letters for the banner, and adhere to each decorated Butterfly.
- Cut a length of thin ribbon long enough to hold seven Butterflies end to end with extra length on each end.
- Place the Butterflies in correct order, and open the fold. Place adhesive on all of the Butterflies.
- Place the cut ribbon at the top of the folds, and press the Butterfly closed (Main Photo).
