Paper Butterfly

Maggie gave me the book as a birthday present. {Thanks Maggie!} The butterfly was the first one I tried and even with all the mistakes I think it is so pretty. It took a half hour! I think now that I’ve done one I can do others in about ten minutes. I can’t wait to start experimenting with paper.

    So you inspired me when you posted that book. It made go down to barnes and noble to buy a craft book. But I couldn’t find one that spoke to me so I went to the library the next day. And BOOM there was the book you posted about. So beautiful! Your butterfly included!

    What do you do with all of the designs you make? I used to have an origami-a-day calendar and stopped making things because they just kind of sat around. Any ideas?

    you can save them for ornaments on a tree… or give them away to a random person in your life…

    I learned the art of origami young from our two Japanese exchange students! Very found memories. I haven’t made anything in a long time, but my daughter has just started playing around with it! Now I definitely want to make that butterfly to highlight on my blog http://www.doyougetbutterflies.blogspot.com!

    How appropriate and how cute would they look in all different colors on my daughter’s bedroom wall! And a great project for us to work on together.

    Thank you for sharing!

    After seeing this post, I followed a similar butterfly origami pattern online and used them to make spring cards. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Gorgeous. You should hang a few of them in a public place so they make people smile. Sometimes it’s little things like this that can turn a sad day into one with sunshine.

    I would love to learn some origami. I used to know how to make cranes but I’m afraid I’ve completely forgotten how =/
