This website has been created so that I can teach you how to make origami – the Japanese art of paper folding. The word Origami is a Japanese word – 折り, which is the combination of the words Ori 折り – to fold and Kami 紙 – which means paper.
As well as the usual traditional models you usually find on many websites, I try my best to make tutorials for more unique and original designs. Coming up with new ways to make pretty origamis is something I really enjoy doing in my spare time!
My origami instructions are often video tutorials, because I find that it is the easiest way to learn origami and for me to teach it to you. You will find lots of tutorials on how to make paper boxes, bows, envelopes, mini books, flowers, butterflies, Japanese characters like Totoro and Hello Kitty, there are simple instructions for beginners and challenging designs for advanced folders too!
If you would like to know more about me, you can check out the about page here. I run a youtube channel, called Paper Kawaii that has all of my video tutorials on it, check that out here and don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter!
I love to hear back from you so please leave me a comment below, if you have any feedback, suggestions,questions or if you would like me to feature or review your origami book you can get more information and send me an email here.
