Permission is not granted to take photos of Paper Kawaii’s models and submit them to stock photo websites to make profit. Any of these photos will be reported and you would risk loosing your stock photo account.

Throughout this website you will see ‘Design: (person’s name)’. If the design is Paper Kawaii, this means that the design belongs to Paper Kawaii.

If you have found this design yourself too, *feel free to say you have discovered it, but mention who else has also discovered the model first (and get permission before making any tutorial or diagram).

When someone comes up with a model themselves, even a relatively simple design, the folding process will always be different, if it’s exactly the same, then it’s pretty obvious that it’s been learnt from the original tutorial.

* this information is just for Paper Kawaii’s models, not other designers/creators models.

Getting Permission To Re-Create Tutorials

Please email us here if you would like to re-create any of the origami tutorials on Paper Kawaii or for any use of the content including diagrams or photographs. 

It is not appreciated when people create tutorials of copyright protected designs especially when no credit is given. Any videos that are re-uploaded will receive copyright strikes on YouTube and your account may be shut down.

Teachers Can Teach Paper Kawaii’s Models

You have permission from Paper Kawaii to teach these models along with any diagram that is available on or

Please include info, links and attribution.

Building upon/ model variations

It is totally fine to build upon, change, modify, re-work, make better, add to, make variations of any of the designs featured as belonging to Paper Kawaii. Such modifications will become your own design if they are different enough.

Mentioning the origin of your modification is not only appreciated and honest, it lets others do the same and spreads origami more freely world-wide. Your modification should have very noticeable differences in the final result and the process. Changing one step is obviously not enough.

Selling Origami Models In Your Online/Market/Shop

If the design is listed as Paper Kawaii then you have permission sell the origami model – just the physical model. Please mention in your product info where you learnt to create it, listing this website ( would be much appreciated. If the model is listed as traditional, there is no issue and no need to credit anyone. If it’s someone else’s model, you would need to contact that person.

Copyright MISTAKES

If you are the designer of any model on this website and you wish the content to be changed or updated, please email us here.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, for more information on origami copyright, please see Origami USA’s website which has extensive (if not a bit confusing) copyright info. Sara Adams also wrote a very good article about getting permission and why you should not because of copyright but because it’s the right thing to do.
