Junk Mail Becomes Butterflies

junk mail butterflies, upcycle junk mail, junk mail craftsI always thought caterpillars turned into butterflies, but when I saw these awesome winged beauties made from junk mail on Growing Up Green, I realized that butterflies may be born from an envelope as readily as a cocoon! What a simple way to turn an annoyance (junk mail) into lovely decor. I have seen butterfly chains sold in high end stores for a lot of money -- so to think you can make them yourself by upcycling mail and perhaps stringing them onto fishing line is brilliant... and green!
