Today I have the tutorial for the origami butterfly! I hope that you enjoy! :<)
To begin, you will need two squares of any size - I used two 4" squares for my butterfly. If you are using a paper with borders, you will need to cut the squares from two corners of the paper so that when you lay them in front of you, you will have the borders on the top and the right edge of one and the top and the left edge of the other. A right and a left wing.
Starting first with the right wing, it should look like this as you begin:
With the paper again opened flat, fold it in half.
Now open the square and fold again on a diagonal fold line so that the borders line up like this - on the right side and bottom.
See where the cross lines form the small square in the bottom right? You will now lift the paper to the left of the inside line of this square.
Like this. Lift up on the paper to form a peak.
See the diagonal line in the middle of the top square? You will now lift the outer left edge of this square. It will lift the top layer.
See how it is opening? Flatten this by pressing down on the top.
Bring them together by overlapping at the middle and glue and you have a beautiful butterfly! How easy is that! :<)
So that was fun! I hope you make a butterfly of your own - I would love to see photos if you do!
