Jinjeet Phoenix, I found the site you were looking for:

http://www.yesnet.yk.ca/schools/jackhulland/projects/butterflies/activities/artlesson/01.html

This is great we have a lot of bottle here too.  I also found a few other site that looked pretty cool to recycle soda bottles.

Thanks.

These are so amazing, and just what I need!  I have a butterfly-themed memorial that I'm crafting for and these would make absolutely perfect take-hime gifts to give everyone who comes.  A nice recycle project too!

Thanks for posting that link, I'll have to go there.

Thank you all so very much.  You all are so kind.  You all give me courage to post some of the other things I have made everyone here is so very talented.
To answer some comments.  First Panda!!! You are an angel!! That is exactly the site I was looking for.  It shows\describes perfectly.  I just made some adjustments.  There is another site also that I can't find.  Its an incredible site...all animated and shows even more beautiful butterflies...I'm still looking.
I didn't do all of these butterflies at once.  I did download the 3 pictures and multiple copied them and did three of the same at once cause that was the size of the bulletin board I had.
Also I need to give credit to stellato_escuro for posting that incredible site with another way to utilize plastic bottles.
Lmcbride, that is a wonderful idea.  I love butterflies (not many where I live...sad...so I made some)
I tried to make some with magnets but couldn't get them to adhere enough then the magnet was too small (body of the butterfly) to be strong enough to stick to the fridge so take that into account if you make them.
I got the suction cups at the $ store.
Thank you so very much for hitting the "hot" button.  I'm grateful.

I love them!  I will have to do this with my mentee sometime.

I'm also picturing a morbid art exhibit... plastic butterflies tacked into a display box like a butterfly collection, along with krissykats two headed kitten in a jar of formaldahyde ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=217369.0 )

I suck as an animal rights activist.
