page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami butterfly.
The origami butterfly is based on so-called "twin-boat base". So you will learn what this twin-boat base is and how it is related to the butterfly. Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami butterfly.
If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the
origami butterfly. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are
slightly different whether it be in texture or color.
Make sure the paper
that you use is a square(all sides are equal and all the angles
equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm square one. It is a good size for those who are not expereienced in paper folding. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
