Flatten specimen

Spreading Butterflies: Step 5. Open the wings and flatten the specimen by pinning two paper strips near the body of the butterfly, parallel to the groove in the board. Don't worry about the position of the wings at this stage but leave room with your top pins so that there will be space for moving the wings up into proper position. Let the flattened specimen accomodate for a few moments while you get ready for the next step.
