Now keep in mind that part of the magic of origami, and what makes it so good for the mind, is the challenge of having to transform just a sheet of paper and a diagram into a three dimensional model. And if you have not seen many of these diagrams before, they may take some time to get used to.
I’ve tried to make the instructions on these page as straight forward as possible… but if you don’t understand right away, don’t head for the rubbish bin! Give it time… keep looking at the instructions, and give it another go. And don’t forget to read the instructions as well as looking at the diagram picture: both contain important information.
It’s best to have plenty of paper; so you can start afresh if your paper gets too many creases on it that aren’t right!
And make sure you crease each fold really well, using the side of your thumbnail, or the handle of a pair of scissors. This makes a much neater model in the end, and makes later folds easier to do.
