Ribbon butterfly.

We are all very lucky that we are all living in this computer yugam.
Here internet helps us in many ways. One who wants to show cause their cabability can show their skills through videos. The one who wants to learn things can watch the viedos and can learn and try. This not applicable for crafts alone. Even cooking, learning so many new dishes trying it out is a healthy habbit.
I feel lucky to learn things and thanks one who posts their skills in youtube .
In such a way I come cross this butterfly making video in youtube. I am not able to read the language, but seeing the photos make me try it out on hand.
I tried it out and happy to see the result.
This is done by satin ribbon .I attached two colours together and centre part is a bead work.
This is a trial. In feature i can use this in some projects.
I attach this work in a paper plate.
