One Comment for “How To Make An Origami Butterfly”

  1. Okay I’m proud of myself so i had to comment. So I’ve decided to make some origami for my friend out of some super pretty scrapbook paper I’ve got and boy howdy is that a choice. Luckily I’ve done a decent amount of origami so i could make some adjustments on the fly, but I feel like i just gave my hands a good workout as I forced this thick paper into increasingly small folds! I found the head looked a little strange so big, and had to do some fiddly folds to get the wings to look nice, and i couldn’t help a couple tiny tears BUT I think it still looks pretty cute!
