Egg Cartons Ladybug

Turn egg cartons into ladybugs and let them fly around your house!
Do you agree that insects can be cute? Looking at all the real ones flying around with this annoying buzzy sound, I’d say they can’t but there’s an exception which enchants kids and adults. One of my daughter’s beloved animal is a ladybug. She loves pointing her little fingers at this red spot landing on her dresses. We even have a nursery rhyme in which we ask a ladybug to fly to the sky to bring us a piece of bread.

I wanted my little princess to have her favourite insects at hand, so inspired by Crafts By Amanda I transformed some Egg Cartons to make small decorative paper ladybugs. We play with them every day, you can’t even imagine how fast they can fly. I think they should be assisted by butterflies so I’m looking for a project to make similar butterflies to those from Butterfly Rice Tosser. Do you have any idea how to make them? Give me a hint.
