Holy carpet! They're everywhere! O.O
I started making these butterflies after exams in July, and I got the idea from people who collect real butterflies. In any case, I started thinking about putting them up on the walls of my room, and they give a different look. My walls are forever doomed to be white, so these butterflies add colour and taste. So in total I made around 5, got bored, and now I'm getting back to it :)

  • How to fold an origami animal. Butterflies :] - Step 1
    Step 1

    The first step is to come up with a butterfly template that you like. Personally, when I was searching up some outlines, I didn't like most of them, and created my own.

    Step 2

    Grab your materials, and start cutting them out! To make them look nicer, try not to you the same pattern twice, so go through a magazine if you want.

    Finally, start putting masking tape on the back of the butterflies and on to the wall. To make them stick out more, sort of make a crease in the middle, but not a lot cause it will show the tape. Eh I didn't make enough to fill one part of the wall T________T

I did paper hearts<also found right here on the site> and put them up next to the wall by my computer.

you could probably get them different sizes and growing randomly... it's be way cute!
i'd probably do it... if only my walls weren't already full.

Smart way to brighten up a room. Other shapes would also be neat.
