Origami Bear Trap II: JAWS -- Snaps Shut When You Touch It!

There are different levels of origami from very basic to extremely complex. Little did you know that when you were making a paper airplane as a child, you were doing an origami project. This is an example of basic origami. Many people's interest in folding paper stops at the paper airplane. However for many other people, origami is quite fascinating. Besides the educational and behavioral advantages of origami, parents can use this activity to occupy a child who's bored or lonely. It's an inexpensive activity that a parent and child or children can do together. This means time spent together and an opportunity to build a good parent/child relationship. Origami is an activity requiring just one physical material - paper. With just one piece of paper an individual can create numerous beautiful and complex compositions. They type of paper used for origami would depend on the project. For simple projects such as a paper airplane or a crane, normal copy paper (19-24lbs) is sufficient. Origami can be used to bridge the gap between patient and doctor. This will certainly make it easier for the patient to be comfortable and more inclined to share their feelings and work on their problems. It is imperative that a doctor and patient develop a good relationship. Not everyone is willing to discuss emotional issues and/or psychological problems. The geometric study of the crease lines over the last twenty-five years has paved the way for the discovery of new bases. Not all designs are combinations or parts of other bases; some like the box pleat are completely original. Some origamists saw the base as a set of areas each independent of the other differing only in their length and arrangement. Turn the figure over; fold the edges onto the outer lines making two mountain folds. Turn the figure over and refold the Cupboard. Turn the Cupboard over once again and fold the edges into the middle line resulting in two mountain folds (upward angles). Fold up the figure and you have made an eight fold fan with alternating mountain and valley folds, also called an accordion fold.
