Hello! I have been lurking here for a while and thought that Origami was really cool and that I want to do it myself. However I do not know where to begin; any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just going to copy and paste here, let me know if this isn't enough.

https://www.origami-resource-center.com/paper-airplane-instructions.html
Airplanes are probably the best introduction, since you can fly it when you finish and the folds are simple while teaching you to read diagrams.

Then try learning inside reverse fold, outside reverse fold, crimp, pleating, and fold the bases here: http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-base-folds.html

If you’re still here, I’ve made this clip to help you. If you need help, just ask me, but keep in mind that /po/ is a slow board.
>>
>>558472
Thank you. I wish I had paper. I have none not even printer or snything

I want to but cheap but decent origami paper
>>
Anything I can fold with standard A4 paper?
Dumb question, of course, but I noticed the fox is a proper square piece of paper.
>>
>>558499
craaaaaaaaaaaaaaanes
once you know how to fold them you'll make a ton of them

When I was a kid I got some books. Pic related used to be my personal favorite. It has models from beginners to more advanced (the book uses all basic folding techniques at some point) and it provides you with designed paper. It has easy to follow instructions for the most part and is how I got good at origami.

Although at the time I didn't have internet so the internet is probally a better option and has a better variety. I personally think getting some books is the way to go.

This X-faced cube is the ultimate beginner project. If you need a book, get the color photo book by the late Rick Beech. His book is aesthetically pleasing vs. intimidating blueprint-like directions
>>
>>558589
I had that book too!!

>>558472
Nice.

Ran across the fox fold on the home page. Never, ever have done oragamia/paper folding before, but saw this thread was for beginners.

Tried it. It was kinda fun. But I need square paper and/or a ruler. Because these foxes look retarded.

Learn yoshizawa-randlett system of diagramming. Should be available onlibe if not most books have an intro to reading diagrams. May sound voring but itll help in the long run.

Watch happyfolding on YouTube. Really good intro course.

If you want to do complex models you might want to learn cp. However the other two steps come first.
>>
>>558475
Use tissue paper from a local store. you need 2 pieces of tissue, glue and a flat surface. it really makes good paper, especially double coloued.

There are many YouTube tutorials out there for beginners. I would just start with one of those.

>>
>>563898

most models aren't fit for thick paper that doesn't fold very well but there's a waterlilly/lotus model that might work with tp
>>

>>558472
Man this is comfy as hell
>>
Making paper crane is so difficult for beginner.
>>
>>563898
Look for Alizee Glasser origami, she makes lots of toilet paper models.
>>
>>563917
Yeah I tried and it only looks good if I hold it together. I think it is supposed to stand on its own
>>
>>557762
Nice crane

Don't mess with the freaking crane. This cube is the easiest good- looking model you will ever fold.

Bumping nice old thread
>>558472 made me some nice memories.

Where do you guys buy paper? I need some larger paper but it's all decorative, I just need some 30x30 plain paper
>>
>>569144
I buy my paper from my local papershop, but then again I live in Amsterdam, so I have many stores closeby.

I guess you could buy your paper from Amazon or Aliexpress
