Origami Blue Butterfly Boxes

Origami Blue Butterfly Boxes post image

I must be dreaming of summer and we’re still far from spring because lately, I keep thinking of butterflies.

Whenever I see a butterfly I remember the warm sweet smelling slopes of the Andes mountains of my native country, Colombia, and that time a friend took me to the banks of a river and we watched thousands of butterflies hover and dance over the stones at river’s edge.

It was a magical moment and in it, I could see the character of Mauricio Babilonia being swarmed by butterflies in Gabriel García Márquez’s book, One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Take a moment and fold this little butterfly box with me, in whatever color you wish, and celebrate the beauty of this lovely creature.


Tips and Suggestions for the Origami Butterfly-Box

  • The butterfly is made with a rectangular piece of paper in the proportion of 2:1
  • Use paper with a different color on each side.
  • Kami paper is used in the video demonstration. This is a perfect paper to make this butterfly.
  • Cut in a half a square of paper 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15 cm) to obtain two of the desired rectangles.
  • Go ahead, make yourself a rainbow of origami butterflies!
