Hello lovelies! I have been making these hair clips for a while now, they are butterflies made from plastic milk cartons, which are then attached to hair slides.

I cut the butterfly shapes out of the milk carton, which has a lovely soft edge, so no danger of cutting yourself! And then coloured them in with sharpies. I folded them in half to make them look more alive and then varnished them. When I do craft fairs they are the thing that sells most... if only they knew how easy they are to make!

They are so pretty, no wonder they sell so well. You've done a great job on them. Love the colors.
