Introduction: Butterfly Origami Wall Decor
This post is on how to make a beautiful wall decor incorporating origami in butterfly shape.
Step 1: Materials Required
Color paper/Origami paper
Double sided tape/one sided tap
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.
Fold the other side diagonally as well to get a “X”.
Fold horizontally and vertically as well.
When you open, You should have a “X” and “+”
Fold on the horizontal line.
On the right side, push from the top side diagonally till the marked end (halfway)
This is how it will look like now from top. Push the edge completely inside to form a right angled triangle.
Do the same on the other side.
Now fold the triangles. Cut on the bottom edge as per the marked line (a small curve)
Open up and fold the curved edge along the green line to the top.
Do it on the other side to form a Heart.
Now turn it upside down
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.
Pinch the middle portion from outside, after folding.
Open the wings and here is your beautiful butterfly :)
I made them in rainbow colors and pasted them on wall using tapes. Trust me it looks amazing in person than on the pic :)
Its time to make a big flower near the butterflies

Yes, I've made the butterflies and am having trouble taping them to the wall. They flatten out and lose their shape... any tips?
