||Origami Butterfly – 3D variation
||~ 6 cm
||washi paper, Japan
Today is the 101st birthday of Akira Yoshizawa, the great origami master and the father of the modern origami. You have probably noticed that Google marked the occasion with a special origami doodle created by Robert Lang!
Why not to celebrate the event by making your own origami butterfly?! Here is a step-by-step tutorial for a 3-d variation of classic butterfly by Akira Yoshizawa, enjoy!
UPD. A few people have asked me about the paper I used to fold those butterflies, so I thought I’d update the post with some photos. It was a set of traditional Japanese washi paper (brought to me from Japan). Try the producer’s webpage - Awagami Factory to find out if it’s available in your country.
