Butterflies

Since the “21. International Convention of Origami Germany” I’m crazy about Butterflies…

The first “trigger” was Kalami’s wonderful butterfly-wall, in the room I slept in…

… and the second one was the butterfly-workshop by Robert Lang.

21. Internationales Treffen Origami Deutschland

I really enjoyed folding this butterfly and I was afraid to forget how to fold it, so I began to fold two or three per day (and gave them away)
After a few days the idea to decorate my wall with butterflies grew and I decided to fold many blue butterflies (my livingroom is very blue and I love this color ^-^) I also began to fold other butterflies, like the Origamido and Swallowtail Butterfly designed by Michael LaFosse…

It’s not finished yet, but here is my wall so far:
Butterfly Decoration

The biggest butterfly has a wingspread about 13cm (5.12 Inch), the smallest about 0.5cm (0.2 Inch)

The white Butterflies are folded by my friends Mitanei and Coming_Curse. I hope every friend will fold me one white Butterfly with his or her signature for my wall, so I can have them near me every day ^-^
