THE FOLDED CORNER
ISSUE NO. 1 SEPTEMBER 2018
Hello and welcome to the very first issue of The Folded Corner!
My name is Chrissy, I’m the person behind Paper Kawaii.
Why The Folded Corner? Up until now, Paper Kawaii has been a paper craft and tutorial only website, with a few reviews along the way. I have always wanted to include more reviews and also giveaways. However previously, I have felt that my reviews are quite short and not worth making an entire post about! When they are collected together in an online magazine format, it makes more sense to me.
The name ‘The Folded Corner‘ was suggested by one of my readers. I liked it because ‘Folded’ = origami. ‘Corner’ because many people fold the corner of a page in a book they are reading to mark the spot (they should just make a bookmark!). Corner – also because this is a little corner of the internet! Perhaps the name meaning did not need explaining, I’m sure you get the idea!
WHAT IS THE FOLDED CORNER?
The folded corner is a monthly online article featuring origami reviews, tutorials, giveaways, community photos, free printable origami paper, coupons/special offers and more!
Want to submit an idea or suggest a specific item? Please see the bottom of the page for contact info and more information on how you can contribute to The Folded Corner.
Fall is just around the corner for lot’s of you guys! Here is a free pack of 10 printable origami papers covered in little fans, leaves & sakura flowers.
