    Sadako Sasaki.

    When I was last in hospital I remembered the story of Sadako Sasaki and started folding crains aiming to get to 1000. I didn't quite make 1000 but I did a lot.

    Impressive Origami Dragon

    I was so impressed by this dragon, I had to share. I've liked origami since my grandmother bought me a couple of books and papers for it when I was in fourth grade. Without looking at instructions I can do a seal, crane, box or paper balloon, and a few others. This however IMO...

    Late Bloomer

    I Just started folding origami about a year ago. Seems like most people start young. This like heaps of other things I have started late in my life. Better late than never. How fun it is to make something so cool out of a simple piece of paper. I really like folding money as well...

    I Also Fold Origami

    I love the Komatsu squirrel and have always gravitated towards the more complex origami, I find it helps me to focus and relax. While I rarely have time to fold these days I do return to it when things get really bad and I just need to find my centre again.

    I Fell In Love With It My First Try

    Its so simple, relaxing, fun. It takes time and effort to make it beautiful and your own. I have figured out how to shrink the projects. Just make what you start with smaller. Its nice to try and find new ways to make something. Like the birds and balloons. I just love it. Its so...

    Since I Was Little

    My folks got me a book of origami when I was 8 I think. I couldn't do everything at first, but tried to master at least one new origami every year (which progressed as I got older). By high school I was fairly proficient & actually folded over 100 cranes for the Model UN club...

    Kusudama And Modular Origami

    I have been folding origami since I was a child. It is a simple pleasure. There are a few rules to follow when it comes to working with paper which require technical aptitude. It is an art form that follows logic and high math. It is also, in a sense, magical. What I like most...

    Origami was first introduced to me by my father.

    I was seven years old at the time. My father was a lot nicer to me back then. I remember sitting with him on the bed learning how to fold a frog. I've been folding ever since. I received my first book at age 8. Later I received another book from one of my mother's friends as a...

    Can someone teach me better?

    I want to make really cool origami, but everything I make just doesn't look natural. Like all things with time, it gets better. Can someone be my mentor?

    For Fun

    I like to print things off of the computer and use as crafts for the kids. They love it and although I'm not great at it, they could care less. I do enjoy watching those who are proficient as it is quite the talent.
