You can hold your paper horizontally or vertically. Use glue to affix 5-8 bow tie pasta butterflies to the sheet of paper.

Using a black marker draw a dashed black line to show the path the butterflies took; I like to add some turns too.

Make the butterfly antenae on top of the bowtie with your black marker.

Now hold your green construction paper the same orientation as your main project and carefully use scissors to make lots of slits. Carefully angle some in so that you can tell that they are many shakes of grass. Now cut a straight line to get the strip of grass and use your glue to affix it to the bottom of your butterfly art project.
