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.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial, I added ‘Disqus’ comments system (below the post), which allows you to upload a photo! I’d love to know what you think of the ‘kimono’ – I’m not an expert so I will call it kimono inspired ;).

? As a quick update for the website, I will be holding bi-monthly (or maybe monthly) giveaways here. They will either be origami or craft books, and sometimes it will be ‘Kawaii’ inspired stationary! So please don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list to keep informed. 🙂
