The evolution of butterfly wings

I had a very bad output with the wire+ stocking wing - pictured below on Sophia. So we replicated the wings we did  before using plastic paper mached with tissue.

First we cut up a sheet of plastic - old grocery bag in the shape of a butterfly. Then we paper mached over it with colored tissue paper.
 Let is to dry for a day or so
 Punch holes and thred through. Here is Anjali decorating her;s
 And Sophia

 Anjali decorated hers with paint, gliter and red colored sand left over from a previous project
 Here is Sophia modelling the tiny wire wings
 When Ramya came over for playdate, they soent some time dressing up.
 Princesses/ fairies with wands
