Of course it's common knowledge that art is a way for a person to express themselves. Through art projects such as origami, a person's individuality is revealed. This can be accomplished by using the origami skills you have and designing your very own composition. For the many people who work tirelessly on their compositions, the end result certainly brings a sense of accomplishment. Although normally made out of origami paper you can also use cloth, newspaper, tin foil, gift wrapping paper, old calendar sheets or magazine pages. Plate Decorations: Perk up any meal with quick plate decorations. Cranes, boats, a bird, a house or a flower made from napkins (cloth or paper), paper towels or any other festive paper you have handy.

Skilled origamists will take on projects such as elaborate ships, buildings, people and objects involving concentration and logical thinking. When people reach this level in origami, often they begin to design their own compositions. Modern origami relies heavily on these existing bases alone and in combination when designing new figures. As an example the kite base is used to make quite a few of the different zoo animals. Studying the creases of existing models has led to the creation of many new models. These creases show definite patterns of triangles, rectangles and other shapes. As an individual advances in the art of origami, these basic folds will frequently be required for many projects. Folding paper may sound boring to some people but for thousands in the world the folding paper or the art of origami, has become quite significant. It may sound juvenile to some but origami can be quite challenging which is what interests many people. First of all the ingredients need to go in the bowl, then they need to be mixed adequately and then put in a pan to bake. If the ingredients were all thrown into the baking pan without first of all being mixed, the result would be a mess not a cake. The same idea works with origami. If steps are skipped the results would be less than expected.
