DIY Butterfly Wall Art

Hello DIY’ers,
As mentioned in previous post, I am continuing with wall decor diy’s as my son loves it, though he’s only 2.5 months old ā¤ šŸ™‚
A Friend of mine gave me origami paper and was thinking what to do with it. I thought a butterfly would a great one to do. I saw many tutorials for butterfly and this one turned out be pretty.
Today’s post is on how to make origami butterfly & use it as wall decor!

Materials required:-
Color paper/Origami paper
Scissors
Double sided tape/one sided tape

I chose 15cmx15cm. If you are using color paper, make sure you take a square paper. Its simple, just fold two diagonally opposite sides and make sure a clean triangle is formed, cut the remaining.

This is how it will look like now from top. Push the edge completely inside to form a right angled triangle.

This is the tricky part, take the bottom edge and fold & move, by popping the heart, and moving towards the top so that a small triangle is formed on the top as shown in the picture.

Now bend this triangle on top and join the top wings, folding in between.
