My friend over at Kellys DIY has made some bright and fun patriot decorations for 4th of July. These would be so much fun to get the family together for a Family Craft Session. Be sure to check out her other posts, because she does all kinds of simple and amazing craft projects!
For this project you will need Scrapbook pages in patriotic colors. You start by cutting the paper in half. Take one half and start at the widths end, and fold under and fold back over like you’re making a fan.

This can be made up in any colors of your choice to match your decor, and the butterflies switched out for little animals or birds. The perfect craft to do together with a child.
