Origami Beautiful Butterfly instructions and tutorial

Make beautiful paper butterflies with this easy origami butterfly model! This tutorial shows how to fold a new and original butterfly origami model that I designed. For best results, use a square piece of paper with different colors or patterns on each side.

This butterfly is a variation of my easy origami butterfly design: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tky2GrR3XKg (a different color for each pair of wings).

This model is very easy and takes only a few minutes to fold, so you can easily make lots of butterflies, that you can then use for crafts and DIY projects (e.g. greeting cards, scrapbooking, wrapping gifts), for decorating a wall, to make a mobile display etc. Please send me pictures of your butterflies and projects that use this model! I will showcase them on the http://origami.plus site.
