Isn’t this Origami Butterfly pretty? Imagine if you made it with a patterned paper. They can be stuck on walls, added to collages, placed on plants, or even put on a wire and added into a floral arrangement. Think of all the possibilities!

Only one side of the paper is seen on the finished Origami Butterfly, so the color of the back of the paper does not matter. Be sure to crease well after each fold.
