Butterflies

Heres something that i have wanted to do for months but just haven't worked it out. I nearly did one morning, all the kids off to school and I practiced for an hour. Just not getting there... So I googled and found exactly what I was looking for (for a change).... wow today is good so far...
The tutorial for the origami butterfly is so gorgeous.

And heres my example...


I love it...I folded it our of leather and applied it to a hair clip
I had to have another go out of paper, being much easier to fold...
for the girls bedroom maybe.

and then absolutley had to have a go at the other butterflies. Which i also adore... I had some gorgeous paper also for my girls...
Having fun...
cheers tam.
