Origami Bandana Butterfly

Fold a bandana into a beautiful butterfly and watch it soar!

Here is what you will need:
  • • Bandana or large square piece of paper
  • • Optional: large clothes pin or pipe cleaner

Step 1: Fold the top and bottom sides of the bandana into the center so the edges meet.

Step 2: Fold the left and right sides into the center to create a square with the seam down the middle.

Step 3: Pull the middles of the left and right sides together, and to the middle of the bottom. And flatten down. You’ll form two triangles, one on top of the other.

Step 4: On the top layer, fold the right corner to the top, then fold the left corner up to meet it.

Step 5: Flip the whole bandana horizontally.

Step 6: On the top layer, fold the point of the triangle up to the top edge of the bandana.

Step 7: Carefully hold folds together and flip over vertically.

Step 8: Fold slightly along crease to form the butterfly. Optional: Secure shape with a large clothes pin or pipe cleaner on bottom at center.
