Hey loves, today I'll show you how to makethese adorable paper butterflies.
You can make a few of them and stick them on a wallfor the loveliest room decoration ever! Making this paper butterfly is so simple andit literally doesn't take more than 2 minutes.
I will show you slowly how to fold the paperstep by step so everyone can understand.
Look pal, this is my childhood photo.
I waspretty, but now I'm gorgeous! Show me yours! – Nah, man.
I rather not.
– Come on yougotta show it to me, I'm your friend.
– Alright then.
:)Ok that's enough you two! To make a butterfly you only need a squarepiece of paper.
If you're using a normal A4 paper, fold one corner up diagonally and cutthe unfolded excess piece away like me.
This way you get the perfect square without havingto measure anything.
I already have some square pieces of paper in a lot of different colorsand I am going to pick this burgundy one.
You can use a larger or smaller piece of paper,depending on how big you want your butterfly to be.
I want my butterfly to be solid burgundyred so I'm starting with this side facing up.
My side of a square is around 14 centimetersor 5 inches.
Fold the bottom half of the square up to perfectlycover the upper half.
Unfold the paper and flip it to the other side.
Now I have thispatterned side of paper facing up.
Take one bottom corner and fold it diagonally.
Unfoldit and then take the other bottom corner and fold it diagonally towards the other uppercorner.
As you can see, we now have three leading lines.
And If you've done them correctlylike me, you should be able to easily fold the paper into a triangle like so.
You needto have the longest side away from you, so it's like a triangle turned upside down.
Takethe upper angles of the triangle and fold the paper down like me.
Turn your projectaround again having the longest side away from you.
Take the bottom corner and foldit up so that it sticks past the longest side like so.
Now you have this little triangleshape on top with the opening in the middle.
Take one half of the triangle and take itdown.
You will need to fold some paper on the side to make it completely flat.
Thiswill give your butterfly a beautiful wing shape.
Then do the same with the other halfof the triangle.
Turn your work around and you will see a little triangle sticking outon top.
Fold it down first and then fold a smaller triangle up like me.
This will bea head of our butterfly.
Flip it around again and fold it in half.
Lastly, fold both wingsagain leaving a small part for butterfly's body.
Unfold slightly, turn it upside downand there you have it.
A cute origami butterfly.
I decided to also make some butterflies frompink and zebra patterned paper.
I love how easy and fast these are to make but look fantasticin the end.
You can use them as room decor.
Take a small piece of tape and loop it toget a tube with the glue on the outer side.
Place it on the bottom of the butterfly andnow you can stick it wherever you want! On the wall, closet doors, windows you name it.
I decided to jazz up my New York wall with these adorable butterflies dancing in thesky.
Every plain white wall will instantly look so much better, especially if you usecolorful paper like me.
Ignore my weird happy dances here, I was just too happy with theresult.
So, what do you think? Will you try to makethem too? Wait.
I almost forgot.
