Butterfly Face Paint Stencil from

Butterflies are the most popular images when working on crafts for kids. They are so carefree while they flutter along without any worries - just spreading good feelings and happiness. Just like children. You just have to crack a smile.

Just print these free stencils for face painting and don’t forget that you can re-size them to fit any size on a copy machine.

Also, cover your paper stencil with a clear coating like clear shelf liner before you cut out the openings. This way you can use the stencil over and over. After the paint dries you can wash them off with a damp cloth.
