Have you always wanted to learn how to do origami but didn't know where to start? Fear not, Origami Basics will teach you the things you need to know to get started. Once you have familiarized yourself with the symbols and notation used in origami diagrams, you can start folding some easy origami models. Remember, the best origami comes from people who practice so don't be afraid to try the same origami model more than once to gain experience. After that, try some intermediate origami models here.
