This is the first in a hopefully long series about origami. This is written as a reference for beginners, so if you are advanced or intermediate, please come here if you don't understand something in one of my models. In Bases and Basics, I will teach about various folds and ways to start models, some of which even start other bases. I am open to any questions, comments, or suggestions that you may have. 

Step 1: The Squash Fold

To do this, you simply press where needed and shape the paper into the shape you want. To illustrate this, I showed the example of the fox puppet.
