Origami! Yay!

3. Watch this video HERE to begin your origami journey with a very easy heart!


Don't freak out if you don't get it the first time - origami isn't really meant to be a quick activity that you can do without really working at it!  The most important thing, and you'll hear me say this over and over again, is that you take your time and make careful, precise folds every time.  Don't rush it, and don't be afraid to take your time and watch something carefully before you start folding.  Let's strive for good work, not quick, careless work.
