Here, I will show you one way to make a butterfly. You are going to need one square sheet of paper. We will start by making a water balm base. Fold the sheet in half to make a triangle. Crease and then unfold. Now, in fold in half again to make a triangle from the other direction, crease and then unfold. You should have an X on the middle of your paper now. Along that X crease, we are going to pinch in the sides and squash down to form a triangle.
Now that we have our water balm base, we are going to take the flaps from the triangle on top and fold up and end towards the middle.
Flip this over and then fold the panicle of the triangle a little bit past the base of the triangle.
Hold the point of the triangle and let these flaps unfold.
You will notice that these flaps stick up a little. We are going to need to fold them flat. Do this by gently curling this edge over. You will need to tuck the paper in and pull down gently at the same time.
Crease this flap, when you are done.
And, repeat on the other side.
Take the pointy tip of the original triangle and fold it down and under. Fold in half down the middle of the paper.
Now, holding it in the center here, take one of the flaps and fold it down at an angle. Do the same on the other side.
And there is your butterfly.
