In 3 sizes, smaller, small and big. The two small ones are for making cards, embroidery, appliqué, that sort of thing. The big ones are meant to be printed one half on regular sheet of paper, then you cut it out and use it for a template on 12x12 scrapbook paper to make butterfly decorations for a wall. You can either trace one side and then flip it over to trace the other side (no fold lines) or fold the paper in half and trace the outline on one half. The center body is the where the fold should be or where it should line up if you mirror it.
My example is origami paper and glitter on black cardstock. I just rushed it so the gluing isn't super neat, but hopefully you get lots of ideas to do much better things with it. I used Martha Stewart glitter which I love for the shades in comes in.

Not all butterflies. There is also a luna moth because I have a friend who much prefers moths!
