Ancient Slavs believed that pure souls come to earth in the form of butterflies. The Japanese considered it a good sign if a butterfly flew into the house. In other cultures, one moth is a sign of love and femininity, while two – a symbol of happy family life. And if you whisper your wish to a butterfly, it will take it to the sky and it will definitely come true.
Why not make such an amazing symbol with your own hands? Just follow our step-by-step instructions and you will be pleasantly surprised by the result.
This geometric butterfly will make a great decoration for your room. You can place it on a window or into a flower pot. But better to make several figurines in different colors and create unique compositions or garlands. If you are a lucky owner of a patio or garden, the butterfly garlands will look great on trees and bushes and will attract real butterflies, which bring happiness.
Take a square of brightly colored origami paper with a size of 15×15 cm and fold it into an Origami Boat Base figure.
Turn the shape horizontally and fold the right and left corners up towards the center so that they meet.
Make an outward fold (mountain fold) by tucking one piece under the other as shown in the photo.
Carefully spread the wings of your butterfly by holding the center part. The size of the fold in Step 5 determines the shape of the butterfly’s wings. If you make the fold wider, the wings will spread out a little more to the sides.
Look how cute it is!
