30 DOC – Origami Butterflies … Day 19, 20 & 21

This could be my catch up on three missed Days Of Creativity, but I prefer to think of it as …


In other words, I decided to fold three different Butterflies all based on the same butterfly folding pattern, but using different thicknesses, types and colors of folding paper.



I used the double- weight paper with a star pattern on one side and white on the other for my first variation. Thick paper is stiffer and harder to fold.

SUNDAY – DAY 20 – THE PATRIOTIC BUTTERFLYDSC00214I used the thinnest folding paper printed with shades of red, white and blue on one side and white on the other. Thin paper is easy to crease and fold.

MONDAY – DAY 21 – THE SUNSET BUTTERFLYDSC00213I used a glossy coated paper with a different shade of red on each side. The glossy paper is a little harder to fold and photograph due to light reflection. But it did produce a butterfly closest to the original pattern.

So, which variation do you like best.
