About Me

chrissy pk01 350x233I’m Chrissy, I’m 28 and I live in Australia.

I love to make origami, and paper craft, since I was young.

This website was started in 2008, it’s come along way from the weird clunky site it used to be, I’ve spent a lot of time on this website and the content on it, I hope that people enjoy what I have posted about and hopefully learned something!

I am a freelance web designer by day and manic paper folder by night. I have a few other hobbies and I switch it up when I get bored, yes there are times when I get so sick of folding paper I never want to see it ever again! But it is something that I always come back to. It is relaxing and rewarding. Eco friendly and economically friendly!

Please follow my social accounts on the right and share my website one Facebook and google+ !

    Hi, I found out about Paperkawaii a couple years ago and I just loved those ideas, and I still love them now. I just have a question, where do you get your origami paper? I’m Korean and when my dad visits there, he buys tons of paper for me. I’m assuming that Australia has stores with origami paper? I would be more than happy if you answered my question. Thanks!

      Hi! I wish I could get some Korean paper! You can find ‘ok’ quality paper in Australia in shops like Kmart or privately owned stationary shops, usually I use whatever paper and cut it to square as sometimes square paper is not quite square! For the Japanese paper there is a shop called Daiso which sometimes has origami paper, and in Sydney there are few Japanese $2.50 or $3.50 shops that have very nice cute paper. But I do sometimes order paper from ebay ☺
      Hope that answers your question!!!

    Hi, I found your videos on youtube annd I loved them. Very cute and novel indeed. I have been wondering, though, where do you get the origami paper? The nice and fancier ones 😛 or simply the ones that are made of solid color and not cheap quality. Thank you so much!

    • http://www.paperkawaii.com PaperKawaii – Chrissy


      Thanks, I’m glad you like them ☺

      Yes it can be hard to find good origami paper. I have found good paper at shops like k-mart, the reject shop, asian stores (2.50 yen stores), Daiso, Target, Officeworks…

      Try and find an art supply store, they often have nice paper, otherwise online I have bought from amazon.com and also ebay.com

      I sometimes use gift wrap paper, comic book paper, music score paper, coloured printer paper and wallpaper.

      Hope that helps!

    I love your work. Especially the box. It is so distinguished but also practical.
    Can you please add the measures of the result?
