A trip to Muji a little while ago resulted in the purchase of some delightful origami paper. Lots of square sheets of brightly coloured paper. I went though a phase as a child where I learned some origami animals and objects (I specialised in a hat that can become a fish. I still do this, more out of a nervous habit than anything. Napkins and everything get the treatment.) Anyway, I thought it might be fun to take it up again. Totally forgot how frustrating it is when you swiftly get halfway through completing the instructions and can’t understand what the next step could possibly be. “Fold back on itself?? That’s not even possible! *Profanities*…”
So I’ve kept it simple so far. The best site I’ve found is Origami-Make, purely because I like how the instructions are animated. There are plenty more out there, I still need to do some exploring. Here are some of my creations so far:
I’ve seen some great ideas on Pinterest for making mobiles and the like, so I’ll have an update soon with what I’m actually going to do with these folded pieces of paper. You can see my board for Origami and Me here.
