Doris of Library Arts makes fireflies with our Tie Dye Paper!

Firefly finished titleThese cute fireflies are made with our R15263 Tie Dye Paper. Doris from Library Arts shows you how to put together these beauties, inspired by Eric Carle’s classic children’s book, “The Lonely Firefly.”

Doris posted this craft on the Library Arts website on May 21st, 2010 and can be viewed here.

The fireflies are made with tongue depressor sticks, craft paper and some paint. Doris shows you her step-by-step with accompanying instructions. The first step is easy to do; make a wash of deep blue across a paper canvas.

You will need 3 tongue depressors per firefly. Cut out the wings from the R15263 Tie Dye Paper and glue onto the tongue depressors. Make the details with paint.

Check out the full instructions at the Library Arts website!

  1. I love Royclo arts specialty papers! My students especially have enjoyed the tie dye paper. It’s got a different design on each side which adds to the fun. My students have enjoyed using the tie dye paper for paper weaving and collage.
