Beautiful butterfly SVG files for papercutting, cutting machines, hand-cutting, vinyl crafts and other crafting...
Butterfly SVG file bundle (designs also available separately)
All the butterfly SVG designs are hand-drawn and created by me from scratch - the lovely paper butterfly template files are layered so that you can use them as a single delicate layer or layer up for a multi-colour effect.
Files are available as SVG, EPS, DXF and PNG formats so are suitable for cutting machines such as Cricut, Silhouette, ScanNCut, Sure Cuts a Lot and more. You can also use the cut files with other design programmes and the PNG file allows you to papercut by hand or to print out the design.
(the designs are also available separately - I'll share them & their separate links later in the page)

Getting Creative with the Butterfly SVG Files
Here are some of the papercut butterflies I made with the files - I cut them from ivory 300gsm cardstock on my Cricut Maker machine, with a background of coloured craft card...

The papercut butterflies look lovely hung in a window - perfect for spreading a little cheer to the community!
I actually ended up hanging mine by my desk - I used dental floss to hang them with - it's fine and strong, so perfect for paper butterflies!

More Butterfly Ideas
As well as paper or card, you can cut the butterflies from vinyl, thin wood, fabric, as a stencil - whatever your creativity calls for and your machine or trusty craft knife can handle!
Here are some more ideas to inspire you:
Butterfly tote bag craft idea - use iron-on (HTV) vinyl to get the designs onto fabric
For these two ideas, you would use iron-on vinyl (HTV) to get the design onto fabric. If you want a two-colour effect like this, you will need to layer up the vinyl - alternatively, you could just use the intricate top layer - or use several of the small silhouettes for another different look, maybe even in different colours.
Butterfly sweatshirt idea - use iron-on vinyl (HTV) to add the design to sweatshirts, T-shirts and other fabrics
For the doormat crafting idea, below, you would need to cut the design onto special stencil-vinyl and then use a paint to stencil in the design onto the doormat...
If you like this butterfly doormat, you could create a stencil from specialist stencil vinyl to paint the design onto the doormat
