2. Starting at one corner, accordion-fold the squares on their diagonals; our folds were 1/4 inch each.

3. Pinch the center of each folded square. Bend a 12-inch pipe cleaner in half and create a small loop. Arrange the squares in a butterfly shape and center them inside the pipe cleaner.

4. To secure the wings, twist the pipe cleaner above and below the wings and curl the ends for antennae.
