How to Make an Origami Butterfly Ball

The video below will teach you how to make an origami Butterfly Ball that bursts apart when hit.

The step-by-step tutorial was created by Jo Nakashima and it’s easy to follow. Nakashima says in his website: “I am a Brazilian nikkei who makes origami tutorials on YouTube. It all began in 2007 when I uploaded my first videos, but I only started working seriously on my channel in 2009. Since then I have improved my channel and my origami skills a lot, and started creating my own models in 2010.”

If it doesn’t work the first time around, just be patient and keep practicing! The end result is worth it.
