I’m Folding Me Some Butterflies

List item: Make something from origami
Progress: Completed

I am not exactly artistic. I mean, sure, I completed NaNoWriMo a few months ago and I leave weird Post-It doodles on my co-workers’ desks…but my point still stands.

Origami kinda appeals to me for the fact that it’s creative, it can look really nice and there are sets of instructions that can be followed much like a recipe. In essence it’s like making macaroni cheese but with paper. Yes, I know it makes no sense.

The first thing  tried was a dolphin… which was so bad I got annoyed part-way through and binned it.

I then got onto butterflies. I actually began to have real fun making these and have since internalised how to make them. This alone would have checked this item off of my bucket list but I wanted to try more.

As you can see above I have tried my hand at other animals. I managed to make a successful dolphin in the end as well as a swan and (a stab at) a pig. Not pictured are two cranes that I have made.

I have a developing flock of butterflies. They are pretty and I want to decorate a corner of the room with them… I may need to put it to the engagement partner though… I am liking this idea.
