DIY steps

Actually what is the most difficult in this DIY is to choose which masking tapes you want to use 😉
The principle is to cut triangles of masking tape.
To ease your work, I have found this great trick on the internet: stitch first your masking tape on some backing wax paper.

You can then easily cut your masking tape in any desired shape. It works with triangles but you can also use punch holes in any shape to make stickers ( I will probably make a tutorial just for that if you are interested).

Stick them by pairs to create the butterflies. Reduce the size of the triangles to create the distance effect of the butterflies that take off.
