Now click anywhere on the "Origami Now!" field, and then choose the second video from the right. I fear I won't be making any videos on Michael LaFosse's models. The reason being, he makes videos himself (and sells many), and they are in excellent quality. If you want to learn other butterfly/moth models, check his DVD Origami Butterflies and Moths. As far as I know it also includes instructions for the Mudarri Luna Moth. -- Sara reply Submitted by eq2 gold (not verified) on 27 December 2008 - 4:53pm Permalink nice....! wow!its really nice.brilliant work!i loved that butterfly.did you make this by paper.i would like to suggest you that you should open a store where you can sell all these beautifull things.because it will help us to collect some new and beautifull things like the butterfly and also at the same time you will be able to earn some profits! thanks....nice work! reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 15 January 2009 - 4:39pm Permalink wow your very talented! i wow your very talented! i loved the butterfly! reply Submitted by dvdfreek (not verified) on 21 January 2009 - 2:04am Permalink amazing that is amazing. imagine that you made that with your own hands. your definatly talented and i wish you all the luck in the future. reply Submitted by Ancella (not verified) on 14 March 2009 - 9:59pm Permalink Thanks :) Hi Sara, Thanks a lot for provinding a link to Michael LaFosse's instructional video on your site.

It's at http://pem.org/origami/ Hope that helps :) reply Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on 17 May 2010 - 2:24am Permalink My own Butterfly Hi Sara! I've actually designed my own butterfly model, base doff this one. You may like to know that I named it after you. It's calles the Adams Swallowtail Butterfly. Keep folding! -Noah reply Submitted by KDianne Stephens (not verified) on 3 December 2012 - 1:18am Permalink Hand Fabricated Paper My hand fabricated papers work beautifully for this model, showing off both the model and paper exquistely. My paper is very forgiving, and most unusual can be unfolded "mended" and reused - the previous folds disappear. A complex process, taking much time to create, this is certainly a benefit!! I hope you enjoy looking at three of my papers.http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=249778475151229&set=a.19373301...http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=249778475151229&set=a.19373301...http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=249778678484542&set=a.19373301... reply Add new comment Your name Subject Comment * More information about text formats Text format Plain textFiltered HTML Plain textNo HTML tags allowed.Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.Lines and paragraphs break automatically.Filtered HTMLWeb page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.Allowed HTML tags: <a> <em> <strong> <cite> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <strike> <h2> <h3>Lines and paragraphs break automatically.
