Turn the main card piece face down and score along the centre fold line.
Take the patterned square of card and turn it face
up. Stick it to the end of the main card - see photo. It doesn’t matter if you can see the tape because this will be hidden behind the insert BUT make sure you do not put the tape too near the edges because the insert is smaller than the main card and the edges will show.
Put foam pads onto the backs of your stay and the sentiment of your choice.
Carefully fold each butterfly along the edges of it’s body. Layer the butterflies with the largest on the bottom and the smallest on the top. Cut a piece of invisible thread which is long enough to be stuck
between these two bodies and to hang the butterfly from the card. Stick the largest and middle sized butterflies together, making sure you only stick the body - not the wings; and sandwiching the thread in between the bodies. Then stick the smallest butterfly on top of the middle sized butterfly. You will want to fold the wings up once the glue is dry.
