Japanese Origami Doll Tutorial

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.
