2. Fold your square paper horizontally then unfold. After that, fold diagonally on both sides, left and right, then unfold.

3. Collapse from the creases made from folding the paper to make a triangle pocket.

4. In the front side of your triangle, fold both sides upward.

5. Turn over so you will have the backside of the triangle pointing downward.

6. You need to fold the triangle past the edge.

Make sure to fold the side flaps as shown in the photo to avoid tearing the paper.

7. Again, turn over and fold the small tip backward.

8. Fold the center along the dotted lines and press flat.

9. This step is optional. You can cut the edges of your butterfly wings to give it a different look 😉
