Origami Butterfly Bookmark Step by Step

Prepare a square-shaped paper, the sizes may be different, depending on how large the butterfly is needed. In this case, origami paper 15:15 cm was used.

Measure or roughly divide the paper into thirds. Fold the paper, leaving a third on top.

And then bend down and the top area.

Open and cut off one part of the paper, as we need a rectangle to work with.

Fold it in half.

And then fold again, for example, from left to right, to mark the fold in the middle of the rectangle.

Point the left side of the paper to the right, revealing the inner area.

Direct the resulting top corner down, pressing all the paper.

Flip over to the other side.

And again open the doubled area of the paper.

And then press down, repeating the shape we folded on the underside.


On the right side, redirect the top of the paper to the left.

For convenience, turn over so that the bottom is on top.

Bend the corner in the middle down on the right side.
