Introduction: How to Make Origami Paper

About: I love to create origamis, and I always love to teach other people how to make origamis. Thanks to instructables, I'm able to create and share my talent with other people

HELLO! Today, I'm going to teach you how to make origami paper. After you're done learning how to make origami paper, you will be ready for making origami! It's really simple!!!

Step 1: Materials:

In order to make origami paper, you will need some materials. Here are some materials:

  • Ruler
  • Pencil (NO PEN)
  • Paper
  • Scissors

You can also use copy paper. The reason not to use pen is because if you accidently make a mistake, you can erase it and it also doesn't matter if it's really grey.

Step 2: Start With Paper

Well, you need paper! You have 2 choices. You can either get regular paper that is used in the printer or you can just rip out paper from your notebook.

As you can see, I just ripped out some paper from my journal.

Once you're done, you can move on to the next step!

Step 3: Rule the Paper With the Ruler!

Now, just use the ruler to make the mark. First, line up the ruler towards the side of the paper using inches, then make a mark! And make sure to have a 1 foot ruler!!!

Line the ruler on the side of your paper and make a mark on where the endpoint is. Then, turn the ruler horizontally to make the same mark on the same inch.

Step 4: Connect and Cut!

Once you made the two marks, just connect them and cut! Make sure the marks are equidistance. Use your scissors to cut along the line you made.


CONGRATS!!! You have created your very own origami paper! Now, you're ready to make a origami! Stay tuned! Please follow me and tell me if you made it by hitting the "I made it!" button!
