This origami butterfly is absolutely beautiful and looks even better with nice origami paper. The wings spread out nicely and the body comes up a little to give it a more realistic look. The head adds another dimension of realism and if you like, you can make and attach some antennas for a more complete look.
|Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper. If you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet.|
|Step 2: Fold the paper in half by folding the upper left corner to the lower right corner.|
|Step 3: Unfold.|
|Step 4: Fold in half again by folding the upper right corner to the lower left.|
|Step 5: Unfold.|
|Step 6: Fold in half again by folding the top half back.|
|Step 7: Unfold.|
|Step 8: With your finger, push down on the middle so that it pops in.
