    Olivia And The Crane

    I was a quiet kid and this was one of my favorite pastimes.Back in the days though the things I folded weren't the sophisticated, beautiful origami we know today. Just boats, turtles and paper planes..My cousins and I even had a competition over who could fold the best...

    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...

    I Fell In Love With It My First Try

    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...

    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?

    Everyday At Work

    My partner's mother (basically my mother-in-law ha) gave me an origami calendar for Christmas because she knew that I was artistic. I had never done origami in my life and didn't even know if it appealed to me, but it was a very thoughtful gift. I decided to put that...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.
