Origami is fascinating. There is a great deal of thinking and engineering that goes into each fold. If you don’t believe me, read about the NASA engineer who is using origami to bring solar panels to space.
It’s amazing stuff and as such, origami has always fascinated me. But, where to start? How does one learn origami? I always find that when you’re learning something new you should start small so that you can accomplish something and feel great.
I am taking drum lessons, for example. My teacher is always sure to pick a song that is at my skill level. That way, at the end of the hour, I feel like I’ve accomplished something.
That’s the way to start with origami. Start small. For example, learn how to make an origami book out of a single sheet of paper. From there, you’ll be making cranes in no time.
Start with the below to make your first book. Complete origami instructions are provided through the video. It’s not 100% easy origami, but it is something you can accomplish. If not, we have a further suggestion after this video.
Option B: If that’s too tough for you, you can always say, “eff it all” and go for some bad origami —
