House Works: Magazine Butterflies

If you're like us, you get tons of magazines in the mail all the time. And they can really start piling up! Some of those magazines are really colorful with pretty pages. So why not turn them into something creative for Easter!

Moms Everyday blogger, Alison Bickel is back with a fun family project making magazine butterflies.

All you need is some colorful magazines, cut into larger and smaller squares. You can start with five each. You need those magazine pages, some pipe cleaners, and scissors and a ruler or paper cutter. Take the squares you've made and fold them accordion-style about 1/4' for each fold. Then put the pipe cleaner around the two sections of magazine squares you've folded to create a body and antennae. There you have it, and easy craft you can do with your kids for Easter.
