Origami originated in china and slowly spread into japan The woord Origami basically means paper folding in japanese. People befor couldnt always just get paper so only rich people did this form of art. However as the paper making process got easier more people did origami. One well known thing is that if someone folds 1000 cranes then one wish will be granted to that person. Many tings can be made from paper and anyone would be surprised. Origami is done possibly by lconducting a number of pattern folds and geomatry. Consisting folding is required, and the use of cutting is not required, nor is glue.
