Framed Origami Butterflies

I made these framed origami butterflies for a friend’s birthday. It features two origami designs from Michael Lafosse’s Origami Butterflies. It’s a lovely book with simple to follow instructions. I stuck the butterflies to some patterned card with sticky foam squares so they sat firmly against the card. I used doubled up squares behind the wings to support them and to prevent the butterflies from tilting backwards. I finally mounted the card into a deep box frame.


I made quite a few butterflies with various patterned paper and chose the best ones to go in the frame. Since I had some left I used one to make this simple birthday card.
