This page is for those who want the instruction to fold an origami butterflyfish.


This origami butterflyfish is not for novice. You need to have at least an intermediate level in folding paper. This model starts from 8 x 8 matrix base. Several folding techniques you need to know for this model are squash-fold, inside reverse-fold, and nail-fold.


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 fish.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami fish. 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.

Here I used a 15cm x 15cm square paper.
