Folding this butterfly model was like a light bulb turning on in my head.  This was mostly due to the very good instructions online.  Here is what I learned:

  1.  Origami models are frequently built from bases.
  2. The butterfly model uses the waterbomb base.
  3. Squish folds are like ways of rounding the model.
  4. There are two squish folds in this butterfly body which lift the model and animate it.
  5. I fold better in the morning than at night!
