Well! That does it! I've been thinking about getting out the watercolors for the last month! Now I have multiple reasons to do so! I love the colors and texture of these and to think they're made from something sooooo common as coffee filters! I'm also going to try the liquid water color idea...stretch my art dollars any thrifty and reasonable way possible. Thanks for sharing!

Okay, so I tried it and I got lost - but I am going to try it again! Origami is not my thing apparently, but these butterflies are cute! I don't have coffee filters, though (don't drink coffee), so I tried plain paper, but I wonder if it would it be easier with tissue paper.

Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. These butterflies look so fragile. They are folded for decorative purposes using coffee filters. Anyone can try this project for fun with the kids.
