Crafts: Paper butterflies to decorate

Tutorial to learn to do origami paper butterflies. It is a very simple craft that can be used to make a lot of things, decorate a wall, make a garland of butterflies, a beautiful painting, decorate a table for a special meal, decorate a little corner of the house, a flowerpot, a frame ... I'm sure you can think of a lot of other things….

Materials needed to make paper butterflies:

  • Sheets of colored or square white paper (if you don't have squares, cut out a sheet of paper to make it square)
  • Scissors (optional)
  • Markers (optional, only if you want to give them your personal touch or have the children paint them)

How to make paper butterflies step by step:

  • We fold the paper first in the shape of a triangle (first on one side and then the other) and then a rectangle (the same, first on one side and then the other) to mark all the lines
  • Once we have all the lines marked, we press a little through the central area so that the lines that we have marked take shape, at first it takes the shape of a 4-pointed star but we continue pressing until we have a triangle shape, then we fold the triangle by the half and we are left with a smaller triangle.
  • With scissors we cut the beak to give the butterfly's wings a round shape (this step is optional, they are also very beautiful with the uncut wings)
  • We unfold and return to the shape of the large triangle
  • We put the beak facing up and fold one of the sides or flaps on each side up to shape the wings, the flaps will be like a mini heart
  • Flip the triangle so that the heart shape is behind and the peak of the triangle is now pointing down
  • Now fold up from the peak to the straight top of the triangle so that the peak of the triangle protrudes a little, fold that protruding peak
  • Now fold the triangle in half and if everything went well you will have your butterfly ready
