Default French translation help please!!!

I found the most wonderful paper butterflies and I believe that you can make them "move" somewhat. But the instructions are in french. I tried babble fish to translate but directions only partially translated.

Another one of those translation sites is Google's: http://translate.google.com/

I know what you mean, Elise, about only part of it coming through. I translated a sentence from English to Dutch, then fed the Dutch back in and converted it to English again. It wasn't the same as the original sentence.

Those butterflies look neat. Hope someone can link the English directions for you.

I am not bilingual, so if you speak French, forgive me! I think I have the gist of the instructions.
Basically, it tells you to cut the butterfly out on both sides of the paper. Separate the anterior and posterior wings only to the body. Then make the folds shown. The dotted line is always on the inside of the fold. Lightly score on the back of the solid line opposite the dotted line. The strip of paper must be rolled tight against the head of the butterfly. The body of the butterfly must be folded along its length and the wings must be folded up on each side. The anterior wings form a large v opening upwards. The posterior wings being horizontal. (forgive my lack of knowledge of both French and butterfly anatomy!)
I sincerely hope that will help you!
