    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Time Taken To Be Original

    I started origami in the 3rd grade and have been doing it every so often since at least twice a week every week it is very calming to do making each fold into part of the creation, I try my best to make each one perfect so the final piece is even better than the last try/attempt...

    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...

    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...

    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...
