Keep working while everything is still wet.  (Fabric paint takes a long time to dry, so you have plenty of time).  A thick layer works best.

Allow your butterflies to dry overnight.  (Don't try to rush them as it is much easier to get them off the plastic when totally dry).

Once they are totally dried, peel them off of the plastic.
