This website contains many (300+) origami and paper craft tutorials. Whether you are a dedicated origami folder, or maybe you need to find some handmade gift ideas, craft to sell in your stores or gift boxes for presents, this is a great place to find all of these things.
Please use the menu at the top, tutorials are predominantly sorted into categories. You can also view just the video tutorials or the photo tutorials separately. If looking for a specific model, use the search bar, which is at the very top or in the right sidebar (on desktop computers). There is also a date archive and category list.

Who Runs Paper Kawaii?
Hi there! I’m Chrissy and I live in Australia.
Since a young age, I have enjoyed making origami and paper craft projects.
Back in 2008 I started posting every now and then just as a small hobby, now 10 years later it has become more of an enjoyable full time occupation.
My day job is graphic designer / web designer / video editor.
Seeing people post photos of origami/crafts they have made after following one of my tutorials is rewarding and motivating. If you have made something from a tutorial, please feel free to tag me (@paperkawaii) on instagram or twitter.
Any other enquiries about anything else, please use the contact page form.
I don’t post much personal stuff online, but you can chat with me and other origami enthusiasts over on my discord chat server if you would like to get to know me better – Join Here! (Discord is a free chat system, somewhat like facebook, except you can chat to multiple people at once.)
Q: Where are you from / What race are you / Where do you live?
A: Originally from England, now living permanently in Australia.
Q: Are you ever going to talk or show your face in your videos?
A: Probably not, but maybe one day! I prefer silent tutorials myself, so I just personally think it’s better without talking.
Q: Where do you get your paper from?
A: I posted quite an in-depth list/overview of all the paper I can recommend here.
You’ll notice ads on Paper Kawaii. These ads make enough money each month to keep the website paid for, as the website has grown, it is no longer cheap to run! I can recommend Dreampress for anyone wanting a fast website.
There are also affiliate links throughout the website, mostly to Amazon. Any time someone buys something through those links, I get a very small amount of money added to my Amazon account which I normally use to buy origami paper!
When you see the ads playing before my videos, letting them play to the end is one way to show your support without spending a cent! Liking the videos and leaving a comment on youtube or on my blog posts helps people find them. Sharing the video or blog posts to your social media pages also helps a great deal.
Thanks to those of you who have bought my eBook and other items in my shop. I really appreciate it!
