Using up my small scraps as I go, have no idea what I am going to do with them though!

What about making a babies mobile.
The things they have hanging over a babies crib. Very cute

They make good hair bows by adding a clip

Perhaps adding a magnet on the back?

Thanks for some great ideas. I have at least 100 done but those few are the only ones I have sewn the ends in etc.

They are lovely! Do you know a child that would like butterflies like those?
The suggestion of attaching them to a hair clip, would be quite inspired, I reckon.
I used to make something like that, but with felt or Fimo for my two.

Like most other home made items the kids today want whatever their friends wear. My 9 year old granddaughter wouldn’t wear a butterfly in her hair and actually the school she attends only allows white ribbon bows in the girls hair.

Put on a dowel for a plant poke, use on gift package instead of bow. They’re really cute.

Put each on a long sticks then put them in a vase on their own or maybe among a flower arrangements. They are lovely.
I could be wrong but I thought I saw a simple afghan with butterflies dotted about.

I made butterflies and gowns etc for a UK Charity for born to soon babies. I found a US Charity which also asks for the butterflies for the chronically ill or injured etc. http://www.angelsforhope.org/ The contact person is Cindy Gabner email address cindy@angelsforhope.org

Butterflies are the symbol for our Hospice. Our volunteers make crafts throughout the year and make little seasonal gifts for our pt. Mothers Day, Fathers Day etc. Maybe a local nursery school could use them for their kids programs.
