Preserve insects

Ha anyone ever preserved any butterflies before? I figured I would try asking. I found a dead butterfly and picked it up because it was so beautiful. I read the pinning technique but I don't have any of the material to do it. But I will get that stuff soon in the meantime I don't want it to rot away what can I do to preserve it?

Keep it in a dry place and it should be fine.. I kept one for months before I accidently crushed it taking it out and it was ruined :( They are very fragile!
