A few glances:
Fold the rectangle in half on short side.
Fold it in half again, Press along as you go, and keep adjusting the work at each step to check the corners match up.
With the folded edge of the rectangle facing you, lift and fold the left corner toward the bottom right corner. This should form a triangle.

Flip over. Now your fabric shape should look like this.With your work flipped over, lift the rectangular shape so it points upwards. Press the folded left corner of the rectangle toward the bottom right corner. This creates another triangle. Ensure the lengths line up.
Now you have a triangle and two small rectangles below it. Starting with the right rectangle first, turn the bottom-left corner inwards and fold a diagonal line across the rectangle, starting top-left to bottom-right.
Do the same for the left rectangle: turn the bottom-right corner inwards and fold a diagonal line across the rectangle, starting top-right to bottom-left. With the peak of the triangle pointing left, fold the top layer of the right-hand corner toward the triangle peak. Your diagonal fold along the rectangle now becomes the butterfly’s body.
Do the same with the bottom corner: fold top layer of the bottom-right corner toward the peak of the triangle. Pinch the bottom corners to firm up the body and stitch in place with needle and thread.
