Tutorial: Butterfly Ornament Paper Craft

start with two square pieces of paper.  i used origami paper.

facing the corner toward you begin to fold diagonally back & forth like you are making a fan

it'll start to look like this...

and end up like this

do the same with the second piece of paper and then glue the center together

with a thin piece of paper, wrap it around the center.  glue the end once its wrapped.

"fan" out the top of the wings and glue at the top

do the same for the bottom

* i found it best to hold the glued area with my fingers until it dried....otherwise, depending on the weight of the paper, it would come apart.

loop a string threw and you have your ornament!

you can also do it with three pieces of paper....
