Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. When I was a kid, we were always making fortune tellers like the one in the video below.


Check out these Google images to see a wide array of origami. In addition, here’s a great gallery and instructions for Modular Origami, my favorite kind. See the Kusudama ball I made below.
