  1. Use the yardstick to measure and draw out sixty-six 2” x 2” cubes on the foam sheet.  
  2. Use the hand saw to cut the 2” cubes from the foam sheet carefully. To help ensure a straight cut, hold the yardstick on the line and use the edge as a guide while you cut. Be sure to always keep the blade at a 90-degree angle to the top of the foam sheet to keep a straight edge. Use pieces of scrap foam as sanding blocks to sand and shape the pieces as needed. 
  3. Lay out your pattern as shown in the image above. Copy the colors in the image or create your own. Separate the cubes by color. Lay down the drop cloth and paint the cubes the desired colors. Let dry. 
  4. Cut 101 pieces of felt 1 7/8” x 1 7/8”. As you assemble the butterfly, glue a piece of felt between the cubes where they touch.  This will give a little separation and outline the individual “pixels.” 
  5. Cut two 18” pieces of wire.  Bend a small loop in one end of the wires to keep the beads from sliding off.  Thread the beads onto the wires, leaving about 2” of wire at the end to insert them into the butterfly.   Add glue to the ends of the wires and glue them in place. 
  6. Glue the jewel accents to the butterfly. 
  7. Twist the chenille stem into a loop. Generously glue the twisted ends into the back of the butterfly for the hanger.
