I’m very quickly becoming a huge fan of, and it’s not just because they send me craft supplies, although I do really like that. 

This past week I received a fabulous surprise on my doorstep from them, a box containing all kinds of craft goodies. 

I couldn’t resist delving straight into the box and making something special for Miss M who has been sick the past couple of days.

Handmade butterfly clothespins made using scrapbook paper and wood pegs.

She absolutely loved these little butterflies. The entire project took no more than 30 minutes, and to see her smile, it was worth every second.


  • Wood Flat Pins 2.5″
  • Tillie Dot Spotted 6×6″ Card Stock
  • 2″ Black Finish Eye Pins
  • Glue Gun

Instructions to make a clothespin butterfly

I used the kids Play-Doh butterfly cutter, tracing around it on the back of the cardstock with a pencil.  I then cut it out and attached it to the wood pin using hot glue. Before the glue hardened, I slotted the eye pins into the back between the butterfly wings and wood pin.

Wouldn’t they make a lovely spring break activity or a fun craft project for a garden party?

You could also attach these butterflies to garden stakes to put in potted plants on your porch.
