Looking for something different to decorate a bedroom ? Do you like butterflies? Why not make this paper butterfly mobile to hang. Just find a pattern and cut them out and hang onstring. You can use cardstock and make it 3-D too. Put some glitter or just leave it plain and if you do not want a mobile then just hang them around room or use for a party.
