Yes these are made from a wood product .
Here is the link to the blog tutorial

I made a box like the 1882 box
for an elderly couple and as a sign of appreciation they mailed me some butterfly’s like these and I just had to know how they where done .
Since I don’t have a table saw at the moment that is in running condition I that I would use some different tools and I had a chance to pay them a visit and was shown the process in detail and these are the first I have done . Please let me know what you think .

Absolutely magnificent! They all look great but that blue one is my favorite! Are you going to let us know the secret to making these Klaus? I would love to give this one a try! Thanks for sharing!

Klaus, you can mark me down as interested, they are beautiful. There is a lady down the street who has some TULIPS made from wood, which are also very beautiful.
I would love to know how these are done.
Hope to see a blog sometime.
Thank you for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Looks like folded and dipped?
Paper is a wood product.
Am I close?
They look very real, well done.

Absolutely ‘Gorgeous’ Klaus, they are very inspirational. Thanks so much for sharing with us. You must share the construction details with all of us.

I, too, want to know the “secret” behind these beauties. They all look very very realistic. Nice work and get that blog started!
