Friday-gami: Origami Butterfly
Hello! And welcome back to Friday-gami! I am so excited to have this up and running again! For our first time back in a while I have a small, five-fold piece for us to work on.
Here we go!
It is not very complicated at all. The folds may look a bit daunting from just looking at the final product, but I promise it isn’t too bad. I used some origami paper that is double sided. Maybe it will make it easier to see what is going on. Also, due to the lighting, I drew lines where the creases are in case it was hard to see.
Remember, alternating dots and dashes is a mountain fold and just dashes is a valley fold!
1. Begin with your square. Mountain fold it into thirds.
2. Make a valley fold crease in the top third from the top left corner to the bottom right.
3. Repeat for the two remaining sections.
4. Now, on the creases you just made, start to fold it like a paper fan you used to make in school (or still do :D).
5-7. In progress folding.
8. Voici! Here is your butterfly! Pretty simple, right?
Hopefully this was a nice ease back into our Friday-gami. I know I said it wouldn’t be quite weekly, BUT I have the next two weeks all ready to go! I planned ahead this time, and boy am I glad I did. Haha.
Until next time…
