Things that you will need:
1.) any size square sheet of paper( i'm using a 6in. piece of origami paper; white on one side, and color on the other side.)
2.) it would be helpful to have 2 hands.
3.) close to perfect folds for every single step.
4.) patience( if you don't understand a step and start to rage; take a minute to relax and then come back to the step you don't understand when you feel calm enough to try again.
5.) LETS BEGIN! :)
