Accordian Fold Butterfly - Tutorial - ScrapMuch?

Hi there!

I have a new tutorial up on the ScrapMuch? blog today, I would love to share it with you here, too.

Start with a 3" x 3" square of patterned paper.  (Well, really any size you want to create.) You will also need some twine or floss.

Fold the paper in half.

Now trim it into a sort of vase-like shape.  You can free hand cut this or pre-draw it with a pencil, it does not have to be perfect, so do not sweat it.

Open up the paper and score at 1/4 inch intervals, across the width of the shape.

Fold up along the score lined and secure in the centre with some floss.

It should look like this. Be sure to leave some lengths of floss for antennae.

Then gently pull open the folds on either side of the centre tie to create your butterfly.

How is that for cute and simple!  And no special tools, you gotta love that!

Thanks for joining me today!
