Origami is a wonderful and elegant art. It has been developed
and embraced over the past 2,000 years by young and old alike.
Who would have ever thought that you could fold paper in such a
way to make creations like:
Flowers (roses, orchids, tulips)
And there are so many more. I could not have possibly included
all of the different patterns there are out there, but we
included some of the most popular designs that would get you well
on your way.
But, more important is the fact that we started at the bare
bones basics and we ended up making some great creations. When
you know the basics of any art form, the sky is truly the limit
in your artistic ability.
Through the course of the book, I hope you found the
information you were looking for, and there is still a little bit
more to come. Following this is a glossary of origami terms so
you always have a reference if you can't remember some of the
origami language that we have discussed in this book.
I have also included a list of many of the websites that I
have used in creating this book. A variety of resources await you
in your origami journey. Each one of them has something different
to offer, whether it is advice or learning origami, a new and
dynamic creation, or something else.
I have had a great time bringing you the information in this
book on origami. I can only hope that you have learned what you
need to know to springboard you to greater origami heights.
Keep on folding, and enjoying this ancient art, and pass it on
to others like I have passed it on to you!
Best of luck!
