Lollipop Butterfly

Lollipop Butterfly

Lollipop Butterfly

This is a simple butterfly paper craft that uses a lollipop as the head and body.

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Sellotape and glue
  • Printer
  • Sweets or lollipops
  • Different decorations or glitter (optional)


  • Print out the template of choice or cut these out freehand (they are very easy — if you can cut out paper hearts, you don’t need a template).
  • Cut out 2 similarly sized hearts from red paper and 4 decorative smaller hearts from white paper or use different ready decorations and glitter.
  • Glue or tape the two big hearts together (overlapping) to make the butterfly wings.
  • Add some decorative hearts to the wings, doing your best to make both sides look the same.
  • Tape the wings to the lollipop or cut two slits in the centre of the wings and thread the lollipop sticks through.
