World of Origami

Printing and paper go hand in hand so we thought we would look into the world of Origami for a few interesting uses of paper!

Need a table decoration, want to use up old paper or even just a way to keep the kids busy for a while? Read on for some easy to do Origami projects.

What is Origami? Origami is the art of folding paper into recogniseable or functional forms. There are hundreds and hundreds of things you can fold paper into, so make sure you have enough paper on hand when attempting an Origami project.

The word origami comes from the Japanese words oru (folding), and kami (paper), and it was from Japan that this art form originated, many hundreds of years ago.

One of the most popular and well known origami designs is the crane.


Even though it is the most well-known, it is not the easiest design to make if you are a beginner. If you would like to fold some easier origami, see the attached images.

Happy Folding!
