The Butterfly Project
1. When you feel like you want to cut, take a marker, pen, or sharpie and draw a butterfly on you.
2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better
3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally, NO scrubbing it off
4. If you cut before the butterfly is gone, it dies. If you don't cut, it lives
5. If you have more than one butterfly, cutting kills them all
6. Another person may draw them on you. These are extra special
7. Even if you don't cut, feel free to draw a butterfly anyway, to show your support.
