What is Origami

The word Origami originates from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper". Hence, Origami means Paper folding crafts. You can create many things like Animals, birds, flowers etc by folding paper into different shapes.

Origami is a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami.

The number of basic origami folds is small, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. The best known origami model is probably the Japanese paper crane.
