I love the idea of using origami on wrapped gifts! Lovely, thanks!
Thanks so much for these instructions! I've made these butterflies before, but it's been so long that I had forgotten how. I also love the ide of antennae. These are lovely! :)
You're welcome :) I love the antennae too. They are the "finishing touch" to the butterfly.
You make it look so easy, what a great tutorial (and such clear photos). I'm going to have to try this - yet another thing to add to my ever-growing to-do list. :-)
This is such a great tutorial! Love it!
You're welcome. I made these butterflies as wedding bomboniere toppers for one of my friend's wedding. One of her guest told me she haven't unwrapped the bomboniere yet...And her wedding was more than a year ago!
Your butterflies are so lovely! They have so much life. Thanks for sharing!Best,Marisa

This is beautiful! Thank you for such a great tutorial.

For the plant ornament option do you suggest some sort of clear top coat to make it more water proof or wear proof or do you think it is fine as is ...By the way I agree with all comments I have looked at oodles of how to's to do a butterfly origami and your's is the easiest to understand and looks the most adorable...the Butterfly is used as a symbol for my Lymphedema condition and I am using your guide here to make lots and lots of butterflies to hand out at a medical convention I have been invited to
If it's indoor, I think it's fine as is. But you can experiment by spraying it with polycrylic? For my plant ornament butterfly, I used a type of Japanese paper called chiyogami...I placed the butterfly out in the sun and the colour hasn't fade...yet.
I'm new to the craft. could you tell what size paper you used?
Love it, thanks for sharing
