Origami is the ancient art of paperfolding.

Origami is the Japanese name for the art of paper folding. Ori means to fold and kami means paper. The word origami is now commonly used around the world.

Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding. The only requirement is a piece of paper and your hands. You can take a flat piece of paper and turn it into a frog, a crane or a flower.

The number of basic origami folds is small, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs.
