• I folded an unfolded several butterflies.
• I studied the crease pattern.
• I colored the sections of a folded model using different color pencils and then unfolded it.
• I studied where each section would be in the finished model.
• I applied the crayon shavings to the surface of the flat piece of the final piece of paper following roughly my sketches of the draft models. I have not done this in a while, but I seem to remember applying color in certain areas of both sides of the paper.
It was involved and took me a while, but everything had to do with studying the crease pattern. Good luck!
These are beautiful, id love to make some for my bedroom.
Do you have a tutorial on how to make the actual butterfly shape?
Others ive looked at on the web are all too basic looking and this design is perfect.
Thankyou, Sian x
Here is a link to a butterfly tutorial. http://pem.org/origami/ It is different from the one featured in my blog, but very nice and the creator is the same. On that page look for a link on the top right corner where it says “fold more models” . You will land on a page where there is a blue butterfly.
Here is a link to Amazon: Great little book Origami butterflies Michael Lafosse
