This was a pattern for a compound cut that I bought from Sue Mae. I used a 2×2 in block of cedar board, and sprayed glue on the pattern and fastened it to the board. Then I cut one part of the pattern out and taped it back to together, and cut the other part of the pattern out on the other side of the wood. I then drilled the holes for the wing cuts. Then I used my scroll saw to finish the cut. When I was all done the butterfly fell out of the block and looked like this! Left it un-sanded, and used it in one of my breeze spinners as a center piece.
