Craft with Pencil Shavings: Butterfly and flowers

This is another one in the series of craft with pencil shavings for kids.

Following are the supplies you need :
- Pencils of various colors , pencil sharpener
- Card Stock (for base)
- Colored paper (black)
- Pencil colors or crayons
- Glue
- Ready-made pollens


Sketch the pattern for butterfly and flowers.Glue the pencil shavings for butterfly wings overlapping each other as shown in the picture starting from end of the wings. Cut out the body using black paper and glue it on once the wings are finished. Add pollens as the antennae. You can use paper for them too.

For the flowers glue the pencil shavings upside down as shown in the pic. Finish by adding pollens and sketching stems and leaves using pencil colors/crayons. That's it. Use it as a greeting card or a wall decoration. You can make multiple pencil shaving projects and frame them in a shadow box for a cooler look.
