Make some pretty origami dolls. These cute Japanese paper dolls are wearing kimono. Looks good on both the back and front.
This Japanese inspired origami doll is made with 3 sheets of square paper.
It’s great to use a bookmark, you may want to make it a little sturdier by adding a dab of glue on the neck if you do.
Thanks to people who commented here and on youtube, I now know that that the collar and front is folded the wrong direction. It should be left over right. So please fold it the other way.

Kimono needs to have the left side over the right, like Lauren commented.
I think these are cute! I like the colors and the form. There’s only one thing though. I don’t know if the image was inverted from the actual product when it was posted, but the fold of the collar is wrong. It should be folded to the right because they fold the collar to the left when the Japanese dress their dead. But like I said, it’s a super cute pattern!
They are amazing I have made a few now thanks thanks thanks xxx
