    Hi! Here are several things you can make using origami method of craft!

    1. Fortune Teller: Start by folding the paper in half both ways. Then fold the 4 corners in towards the center of the paper. Flip it over and fold all of the corners to the middle again.

    • Write 8 fortunes on the inside of each corner. Open the corners on the side where they look like triangles. Each corner will have 2 fortunes.
    • On the side where the corners form little squares, write 4 different things from the same category. For example, if you pick colors, write “red,” “blue,” “green,” and “yellow.” You could also use animals, seasons, types of shoes, etc.
    • To operate the fortune teller, pinch underneath the corner flaps with your index fingers and thumbs. As you open and close your hands, so will the fortune teller.

    2. Water bomb: This base is used in a lot of intermediate and advanced origami designs, so it’s a good one to master. Once you make the base, do a few more folds and then inflate the balloon to form its shape.

    • You can also fill the balloon with water.
    • To make a waterbomb base, crease a square piece of paper along both diagonals and then in half, unfolding in between each new fold. Bring 2 opposite edges together so that the paper collapses into a triangle.
    • If the paper doesn’t collapse easily, you may need to re-crease the folds.

    3. Folding Star: One of the most common shapes for beginners, the star looks a lot more difficult to make than it actually is. Cut a piece of paper in half, then fold the 2 pieces separately before taping them together to form the star shape.

    • Attach your star to a stick and place it outside, like in a garden, to watch the wind spin it around like a pinwheel.
    • You can also use a star as a festive topper for a present.

    4. Plane: Meet the more advanced, cooler version of the paper airplane. Fold a standard airplane shape, or mix it up with a jet or hang glider.

    • Once you’ve folded your plane, it’s time for take-off! Throw it in the air just like you would throw a football and watch it soar.
    • Host an origami airplane contest with your friends. See who can make the plane that will fly the farthest.

    There’s a lot more you can make with origami but these are just a couple options! If you find any difficulty you can always look up a few beginner video tutorials & you’ll be good to go! Hope this answer helps!
