Butterfly Quilling Pattern / Tutorial

During our moves (renting in between), I found it hard to focus on crafts. So I am impatient to finally launch this new quilling pattern for butterflies. Varying the colors, one can easily change the type of butterfly. The monarch is easily identifiable, but would you believe a teal and brown butterfly actually exists? I found the inspiration here.

This pattern first appeared in the book I contributed to, The New Encyclopedia of Techniques for Crafting with Paper

However since then I realized written instructions are slower to follow. Instead of writing out the measurements and instructions, I give diagrams - even where to glue and in what order. I hope this inspires you. I'd love to see what you make with my pattern, sold on Etsy for $5.
