Getting people interested in activities such as origami encourages people to develop a hobby where they can be creative and be involved in a group activity. The therapeutic advantages of origami are amazing. To be able to take a simple concept such as paper folding and watch it make a difference in people's lives is awesome. Other objects that can be made with basic origami include a simple box, an envelope and a square picture frame. These projects can be made with one sheet of paper using a limited number of folds. As people develop their origami skills they begin to look for more challenging objects to try. These objects may include more than one piece of paper and may require more time and concentration. However for those who know little about origami, they may be astounded to see what can actually be made from a single dollar bill. It's amazing what a dollar bill can get you by simply making a few simple folds. There is plenty of available material about origami including books and publications about money origami. The folds produce varying sizes of triangles, rectangles and other shapes. A single fold can bisect and angle twice or as in the case of a reverse fold, make 4 triangles at once. When the first steps to making a figure are applied to other figures, resulting in a number of figures having common shapes, the common shapes are called bases. These people take their interest to more advanced origami projects. Origami falls in the category or art. Of course it's common knowledge that art is a way for a person to express themselves. Through art projects such as origami, a person's individuality is revealed. This can be accomplished by using the origami skills you have and designing your very own composition. Picnics: A large plastic cloth can be folded into a picnic basket then unfolded and used as a tablecloth or picnic blanket when you are ready to dine. A few pages from a magazine and some tin foil will make disposable cups and bowls; add a wastebasket made from some sheets of newspaper and you have much less to clean up and little to carry home.
