Flowers and Butterflies Tutorial

Flores y Mariposas

We are having lots of fun with dot a dot art paint..C really enjoys making projects with this.(You also can use watercolor paint).

Nos la pasamos bien pintando con este set de pinturas de puntos. C esta muy animada haciendo proyectos con este.(Tambien puedes usar acuarelas).


To make this beautiful art we used  at the time two coffee filters ( I put a clothespin to keep them together, that way doesn't move while we paint) then we start painting with the dot a dot set.

Para hacer esta actividad usamos dos filtros de cafe a la vez (puse un gancho de ropa para mantenerlos juntos, de esa manera cuando pintas no se mueven) y luego emepezamos a usar el set de arte punto a punto.


This is mine : )
Este es el mio : )


This is C's : )
Este es el de C

Next to start the tie dye process we start spraying some water and then  let it dry.It takes maybe 15 minutes or so.

Para empezar el proceso de teƱir, salpica agua en los filtros pintados.Y dejalo secar , toma algo de 15 minutos.


Once is dried. Fold each coffee filter like this

Una vez seco dobla cada filtro asi  (en forma de abanico).


Use a pipe cleaner to tie in the center of the filter. Now you have a butterfly.


Usa un limpia pipas para amarrar en el centro y extiende el papel hacia afuera.Ahora tienes una mariposa.


Make three of them and put them together  and you will have a wonderful flower...


C wanted to smell it : )

Puedes hacer tres de estos y los juntas y sale una hermosa flor..

C me dijo: mami puedo oler la flor : )


I put it in my vase for me center table.

La puse en mi centro de mesa.


I also keep some  butterflies to hang  in C's bedroom. She likes them very much.

Tambien use algunas de las mariposas para colgarlas en el cuarto de C..le gustan mucho.

Thank you for visiting us..good wishes.
