The origami techniques that came to us from Japan make everyone feel like a little wizard. Our own hands make a miracle, turning a simple sheet of paper into a voluminous crafts.
Paper for crafts needs to be taken of medium density – too thin paper in inexperienced hands will hesitate, and a dense child will not be able to gently bend it. After all, the whole principle of origami is based on successive folds, thanks to which a flat sheet of paper takes shape and volume.
Compliance with several rules will allow you to enjoy the performance of crafts:
◊ sheet must be strictly square
◊ bending the sheet, be sure to combine the corners
◊ iron the folding lines with your fingers to get a smooth, neat fold.
A butterfly made is a pattern. You can paint it together with your child, decorate it with an appliqué or leave it snow-white.

Then fold them in half.
