The structure has been kept the same as the two previous butterflies, while adding more detail inside and changing the edges to be more interesting.
You can make it look like a completely different butterfly by just making some simple changes!

It's best to begin by laying down the foundation with a basic structure.
Sketch the basic structure of the wings (A) and body (B) . You will be erasing so draw your lines lightly.
While keeping the basic structure the same, alter the outside edges of the wings.
Your sketch doesn't have to be exactly like this one, it's fine to vary the wavy lines and tail.
Create an edging on the outer part of the wings.
These large shapes are common on butterfly wings.
Most any type of shapes will look nice (you can experiment to see which types you like best).
The lines on the top and bottom represent the veins that butterflies have on their wings.
You are all finished with the first wing!
That's How to Draw a Butterfly. Now you can use it in your Papercrafts!
