THE FOLDED CORNER
ISSUE NO. 2, OCTOBER 2018
Hello and welcome to the second issue of The Folded Corner!
My name is Chrissy, I’m the person behind Paper Kawaii.
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! – For more info on how The Folded Corner started, refer back to the first issue.
This month, many people are starting to make decorations for Halloween, I myself do not celebrate it per se, Halloween is only just starting to become popular in Australia. Having said that, I love all of the spooky themed origami I see posted in October.
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.

This month I am giving away 3 copies of my new ebook. Information on what this ebook includes is listed above ^
The winners will be given a coupon allowing them to purchase the ebook for free on my shop 🙂
This month I picked up some new origami paper, it occurred to me that it might be interesting to include any origami paper that comes my way each month (sometimes none!).
We have two packs of origami paper from Daiso this time.
The first is ‘Double sided folding paper’, which includes 60 sheets of 12 colour combinations. I very much enjoyed using this paper.
It’s slightly shiny but the ink did not rub off at all. It’s thin but not as thin as the regular Aitoh origami papers I normally use.
Secondly, I picked up the ‘Design Paper’ in ‘Pastel Orokomon’. Honestly, I’m not a fan, mainly because the colours are quite muted. I prefer bright colours. The paper itself is quite soft, the ink did not rub off. You get 100 sheets of 5 different colour variations.
The photos below were not colour corrected or saturated at all.
