Origami Instructions


Origami is a fantastic art form that guarantees hours of fun and enjoyment, not to mention a great way to challenge yourself and build your creativity. However many beginners come across trouble in 2 main areas:

1. Following the instructions (especially when the creations you wish to fold become more complex)

and

2. Finding enough information in the form of patterns and directions so that you don't become bored!

I know this because I found the exact same problems! As a result I developed an Origami resource that would actually solve the 'Origami Problems' I know people want answered to make life easier for everyone who wants to enjoy this amazing art.

Here are a few samples of some secrets you might not know about origami and the process of it's learning.

- Every line and every shading on an Origami diagram has a specific meaning (that most people don't know) that assists in the understanding of the fold required for that diagram. Some of these include grey shades black shades, dotted lines straight lines, forward arrows reverse arrows and crossed arrows.

- Every Origami structure is made up only of a certain set of folds that is common to every other diagram. ie there are techniques you can learn to assist you no matter what it is your folding. Some of these folds include the sink fold, the wet fold, the reverse fold and the inverted fold.

- There is a certain order in which to learn folds bases and finally full designs that ensures you understand the fundamentals of paperfolding once and for all.

- And finally there are places tucked away (that have taken me hours to discover) where you can find CLEAR directions for any origami design your heart desires, and if you have developed your skills in the right way, you can be able to fold, without frustration.

Don't be one of the people who give up on Origami because it becomes too challenging. Obtain the best information, persist in building your skills and open yourself up to everything Origami has to offer.

Good luck and happy folding!
