Here it is, my first attempt to make a paper butterfly! Sorry for the poor quality... It's past midnight right now and I have no proper lighting at the moment. Just wanted to share this achievement with everyone. 

I want to thank Malleni-Stock for the butterfly stock image I used as the basis for this little creature! Do go check out her stock gallery right here malleni-stock.deviantart.com/g… because it's just amazing!

This was a fun project, working an actual picture of a butterfly to a cuttable form and I think it turned out pretty nicely. I've not really done much cutting with a knife in my life so my cuts aren't exactly clean... Plus the colors didn't work out as I wanted. I wanted to make this black and blue like in the original image, but figured out soon enough it'd be easier to do if I actually had blue paper... I'll be doing one of those in the near future; right now I'm satisfied with this as my first attempt. Well, this is the fifth background color I used and decided to go with because I didn't want to continue destroying anymore paper... lol

All in all it turned out better than I expected. I'll be definitely doing more of these in the future so let's see what I learn during the process. :)
