Origami Butterfly Paper Napkins Tutorial

Origami Butterfly Paper Napkin
These gorgeous butterflies are always a hit! They are simple to make and only require a few folds. Best of all, the design is reversible, you get 2 completely different looks. This is the back view. No scissors, tape or glue used. I used square, lunch size (33 x 33 cm when fully opened up) paper napkins with a simple blue and white pattern. Use the tutorial below to make your own.

  37. Wow! These would be so stunning at a table setting. I can envision them at either a semi-formal event, or at something more casual. (They'd be so beautiful at a garden party!) Your video tutorial was wonderful: clear, and easy to follow. And the paper you used here is so gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing.
