For my English presentation, I was uncertain about which origami demonstration to do. If I’m pressed for time, I could go to this post directly and present. I already did the powerpoint for the heart but I took these pictures before doing the heart and typed up the instructions so I’ll put it up here too. This butterfly is extremely easy to do and takes a couple of minutes. It took me two minutes, rounding down, my sister finished in thirty more seconds, and my dad did it in five.
0. Paper1. Fold paper in half and crease.
2. Unfold. 3. Fold sides of square to meet the center crease. 4. Fold in half to crease.
5. Unfold. 6. Open a flap partly and fold to center crease. Do not press down yet.7. Repeat on other side. 8. Press down so that the top reaches the center crease line. 9. Flatten and crease. 10. Flip over.
11. Repeat steps 6-9. 12. Fold in half. It should look something like a twin boat. 13. Pick up a flap, don’t open it, and fold to the center crease line. 14. Repeat previous step to other side. 15. Fold the pointy corner on the side, not in the center crease line, just slightly. 16. Repeat previous step on other side. 17. Fold in half. 18. Pinch the tip in the front at the bottom.19. Fold a bit, flap it around, and curl the wings slightly. Play with it until it resembles a butterfly. 20. DONE!
