Paper butterflies need no food or water, in fact, unless imbued with a water repellent spell, water can make them turn to mush. Once they form into butterflies, the magic used to make these will last for only a few days before it wears off, but the spell can be reapplied multiple times, or until the paper butterfly itself is damaged beyond repair. It never lands, constantly fluttering about, so if you want to keep one, it is best to not take them outside, otherwise it could fly off, never to be seen again. One should take care to keep these butterflies away from flames, as they are flammable, and one does not want a ball of flame fluttering about indoors.
One of the more easily craftable creatures from the artificers association, the paper butterfly is perfect for children who love art. If a magi draws onto the paper used to craft the egg, the image will appear on the wings of the adult butterfly, making them truly unique to the magi who made them. Some magis hold the belief that if you write a wish upon its wings and set it free, that wish will come true. Children love paper butterflies, often time, it is the first spell a child will learn.
