The Art of Origami

The Art of Origami

In some of my earlier blog posts, I mentioned that I love to do origami. To me, it is a beautiful art form that anyone can do; it does not need much skill! From one piece of paper, you can make paper animals, planes, shapes, and more. Whenever I am free and have a piece of scratch paper in my hand, you will always see me folding away! The benefits of knowing how to do origami include never becoming bored, being called creative, getting attention from everyone, especially the girls. In my senior year of high school, I even asked my friend to prom by making her a bouquet of origami flowers!



When I was younger, I favored making birthday cards over buying cards from the store. My cards were elaborate. When I mean elaborate, I mean creative and time-consuming. Some cards took me up to two hours to create. My cards aren’t the usual pop-up ones that you may be thinking about. My cards required x-acto knives, fine pens, special glue, and more. Yes, I know some people may think I am a little crazy but in the end, I think I create art unlike any other. That alone is more special than a $3.99 greeting card.

I did not take pictures of the cards, but here is an example of one I did do:


BONUS…… Here’s some toilet paper art that I did for a project in AP English. Please do not ask how long it took for me to do 12 rolls…. 🙂
