I have a video that my boss really likes the style of and I was wondering if you can tell me if it looks like something created in After effects? I have been looking every where to find an after effects tutorial that makes something similar to no avail so I'm wondering if I'm looking in the wrong place? I just mean the 3d cutout paper effect, not the butterfly part.

Yes, you could do that in After Effects.
It looks like 3D layers arrayed in a scene with basic animations and the Camera Lens Blur effect for depth-of-field blur. Nothing fancy.

Yes. Draw your figures, scan them, cut them out, animate them as 3D layers in AE. Basic stuff which you can easily learn by watching some tutorials.
