Supplies

Sticky Notes or square pieces of paper

Step 1: Gather Supplies

Any size sticky note will work as long as it is square. This will also work with any square piece of paper.

Step 2: First Fold

Fold the paper in half from corner to corner, making a triangle with the sticky edge on the inside.

Step 3: Repeat on Other Side

Unfold the paper and fold it in half the other way from corner to corner, again making a triangle with the sticky edge inside.

Step 4: Fold in Half

Unfold the paper and fold it in half so the straight sides line up and the sticky edge is on the outside.

Step 5: Next Fold

Unfold the paper and fold it in half the other way so the straight sides line up. Keep the sticky edge on the outside.

Step 6: Make a Triangle

Fold the two sides in, as shown, making a triangle. The sticky edge is one of the parts that was folded in.

Step 7: Turn and Fold the Triangle

Turn the triangle upside down. Fold part the triangle down as shown. Repeat for the other side.

Step 8: Make a Little Triangle

Take the part of the paper directly underneath the parts that were just folded and fold it back. Make sure you fold enough of it to make a little triangle above the straight edge.

Step 9: Make the Wings

Fold the little triangle piece over the straight edge. This will stop the lower wings of the butterfly from laying flat.

Step 10: Finish the Butterfly

Fold what you have in half, folding the little triangle inward to finish your butterfly.
