Butterfly Kirigami Envelope

As I showed you a new kirigami envelope project yesterday, here’s another version with butterflies:

I chose a butterfly that says “Hey you…” as an introduction to the letter/card/gift inside (in this case, I sent pictures)

Now my tools and though I didn’t have a cutting mat narrow enough, I used very thick cardboard.

and on to the cutting (as always, make sure to keep the lines broken at certain points to make sure the entire image stays on the envelope):

finally, the colourful paper inside the envelope to show a contrast and protect the pictures inside:
