If you want to join the cause:

No food items allowed, but pretty much any other crafting medium, as long as its 8"x10" or smaller.

Enjoy!

Would love to help...if someone has some sort of tutorial to follow! My brain is a bit fried to think of one on my own!

Thank you so much for sharing this! I've always been interested in the holocaust and this is a beautiful way to honor those who experienced it. I got started on my butterflies as soon as I read this.

I work with trafficked kids in Houston and we are going to make some butterflies this Saturday.  I got some blanks from Oriental Trade and some other craft supplies as well.  Thanks for posting this!

I am so doing this.  And, I know my son will want to, too.  Also, I forwarded it to a few people.
