I love origami! It seems like every time summer starts, I get into making paper crafts. There is just something so fun and at the same time calming about folding paper into amazing designs. You can look back on it when you’re done and realize that it was just a square of paper when you started, and now, it’s a crane, or frog, or box.
The box is by far and away one of my favorites, because you can put stuff in it! I like to make them for presents when I’m giving away jewelry or trinkets, or heck, anything small enough to fit in the box! People really seem to enjoy getting them too.
Origami is also a great way to keep the kids entertained for an afternoon. Just print off some design and give them some paper and ta-da! You’ll have busy children!
This is an amazing database of origami designs! They range from simple projects to complex ones. And you can use the search engine to sort the projects by difficulty. You can also search for models by name or the date they were added.
Oh! And be sure to check out the Origami Gallery, you’ll find the button for it at the top of the page. You’ll be able to see finish products and get a link to a larger and more recently updated gallery as well. I adore the roses at the bottom of the page.
