Here’s yet another origami “how-to” by me. This one’s really pretty! Let me know what you think! And good luck.
Just as an aside, I’d also like to say that if you don’t have origami paper on hand, wrapping paper works very well, and even regular paper does too (not so well, though). The size of paper I use normally is 6′ x 6′. For more complicated origami larger paper, like 9′ x 9′, is better.
