Steps :

First of all I measure the paper sheet & then cut it with a sharp cutter. There were 4 strips of paper after cutting and separating them.

Make a point where you want to circle punch for putting a tassel or thread etc.

Put all three paper strips together & punch it nicely.

Then keep the sheets together & fix under the butterfly punch & press it. You can do it one by one as well. The 4th bookmark strip made a little mess with the punch & butterfly design was lost. But I am glad to have these three butterflies well.
