Purple origami flowers picture is of my own flowers. Origami is a beautiful art of paper folding. It comes from oru meaning folding and kami meaning paper. A friend of mine made me these beautiful purple origami flowers. I was fascinated by them so decided to learn a little more about origami.

From what I've read you can use any square piece of paper but is probably best to use origami paper. These pieces of art are made using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without using glue or cutting the paper.

Origami paper is available in a variety of size packages. The paper itself is usually any of a variety of colors on one side and white on the back. It also is a thinner paper. You can probably find it at many craft stores.

One of the more interesting things I read was how origami butterflies were used during the celebration of Shinto weddings to represent the bride and groom. Animals, birds, boxes, flowers, geometric designs and a whole lot of other objects can be made using origami.
