These paper insects are printed double-sided on heavy-weight cotton paper, and then expertly lasercut with a precise level of detail (you can see the individual little antennae, just like on a real moth!) They are based on real specimens, and accurately depict their size and coloration. Both the larger designs are exquisitely rare species - the besanti is the rarest Luna Moth type in the world, and the Phyllium giganteum is very rare in nature too!
The heavy-weight paper stock means these moths stand up to some wear and tear. They are a beautiful addition for floral centerpieces, fantasy headdresses, or decorating a table display or cake. The main danger is getting them wet, so if you use them on food or wear them in the rain their lives will be pretty short. If you use them to decorate your wall, or indoors as part of a paper project, they should last a long time!
