Free Printable Butterfly Silhouette Template

Butterflies are a real favorite crafting theme for me and so I could not resist coming up with something on this for the Halloween season.

This page provides you with a free printable design for a large butterfly silhouette in black and white. As you'll see, the design is a half butterfly and that is so I could make this as big as possible to print across a standard letter size or A4 sheet.

The half design is super easy to use once transformed into a template (how to listed on the page) where you can simply flip the template over to complete this beautiful winged insect.

If you flip the design onto its side, you can also use this to make a butterfly profile where you only see one or mostly one of the wings from the side view. It gives you lots of choices anyway.
