This page features two Easy Origami creations, with visual instructions and diagrams included.
Origami is an ancient art of paper folding, and is strongly associated with Japanese culture.
Traditional Japanese origami dates back as far as the early 17th century.
An origami creation is typically made from a single square sheet of paper.
Traditional origami designs involve no cutting, no glue, no tape, and no markings.
The only manipulation allowed is folding.
