Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge last week included a 3D Twist. No problem, I thought. I'll just make an origami butterfly. First I tried a Swallowtail butterfly. My paper was too heavy and the directions were very confusing. Next I tried a tutorial for a Mariposa del Rio. The paper was still a little too heavy and tore when I tried to make some of the tiny folds invert. Finally I tried a video for a Lovely Butterfly and used some freebie flowered paper from the inside of one of my magazines. I think it worked out just right. It only took about an hour or so.

I also used the colors from Fab Friday 14.
