These paper butterflies are printed double-sided on heavy-weight pearl shimmer paper, and then expertly lasercut with a precise level of detail. They are based on real specimens, and accurately depict their coloration. This version of the Morpho crypsis is slightly smaller than our limited edition version.
The heavy-weight paper stock means these butterflies stand up to some wear and tear. They are a beautiful addition for floral centerpieces, fantasy headdresses, or decorating a table display or cake. The main danger is getting them wet, so if you use them on food or wear them in the rain their lives will be pretty short. If you use them to decorate your wall, or indoors as part of a paper project, they should last a long time!
