I have already an account and i have ordered too but i asked what do you do with the certificate. You send it to someone and he orders free or you keep it for yourself or what?
Submitted by Sara on 30 May 2010 - 8:23pm Permalink
I have never bought a gift certificate. I'd guess it's sent to the person you specified. If you received the certificate yourself, I guess you can pass it on. The best person to ask for details is Nicolas (via the contact form on origami-shop.com)

This video makes me so happy... I thought I was alone in being so excited about paper. I took a trip with my mum recently to a specialty paper & bookbinding store- I found myself literally shaking with excitement when I got home and showed what I'd bought to my husband (he thought I'd gone mad, I suspect)...
happy folding indeed- I can't wait to see what you do with the Origamido papers :)

sticky cellophane edges
Thanks for sharing your exciting first encounter with your purchases. I am amazed that you had the patience to wait several days!
By the way, the first thing I do when I open cellophane packages with beautiful paper or cards inside is to turn the flap down and gently stick the glue strip to my desk so that it cannot attach itself to the contents.

hi sara i was wonderin, the origamido you showed in the beginning, the edges looked a little rough. is that just me? would this effect folding models? ps. what book is the lemur folded in?
Submitted by Sara on 28 August 2010 - 12:21pm Permalink
Well, it's hand made paper so you'll have deckle edges. Before folding with the paper, you'll want to cut it to the appropriate size in any case, e.g a square.
The ring-tailed lemur is a design by Roman Diaz. Diagrams are in his book Origami Essence.

What did you fold with the natual tissue paper? You said that you would make something really nice with it. What did you make?
Submitted by Sara on 13 September 2010 - 4:56pm Permalink
Actually, I haven't found the time to fold anything from it yet. Maybe after our honeymoon. :)
Submitted by dave (not verified) on 27 September 2010 - 1:13am Permalink
do you think u could sometime show how to collapse the base for the lemur? i don't mean immediately but if you could add it on to the ,probably, long list of things for you to do.

Promoting books - not competing with them
You make it sound like there's a CP and there's no instructions on the shaping. However, the book includes full diagrams. I guess your question is whether I'll do a full instructional video (I don't do half-baked things), and my answer will have to be as before:
I don't plan to demonstrate another model from this book while it's still relatively fresh on the market. I want to promote the sale of origami books, not compete with it.
Hope you understand,

Yes and no
There's paper suitable for origami on sale at Amazon, but not these particular kinds of paper.

what did you make out of those origami paper?
Submitted by Sara on 25 October 2010 - 7:04am Permalink
I haven't had enough time to commit to using that paper. It is nothing I'd work with without first dedicating some time for preparation and having enough spare time to do a really nice fold. Maybe next year...

would you know what paper i have?
i didnt buy it, i got it free at a convention, its thin, one edge looks "torn" or as you said up there "Deckle", up-close it looks kinda "glittery", i think it is homemade, but it looked like the red one @1:46 on this vid. only mine looks more dark orange...
Submitted by Sara on 25 October 2010 - 7:03am Permalink
I really cannot say
Sorry, but I really cannot say which paper you have. At 1:46 I'm of course showing Origamido, and you may have been lucky to get that.
In general, those ragged edges usually don't come from tearing paper, but because it is hand-made. That itself already hints at it being some good quality stuff, especially if it's thin. :)

Tissue foil and Tant
I've used some of the tissue foil and the tant. I haven't had the time yet to work with the origamido, that'll have to wait until I submitted my PhD dissertation. :)

what did you fold from the fur and natural tissue paper that you got as a sample?
Submitted by Sara on 2 July 2011 - 5:33pm Permalink
Actually, nothing yet. But I did stock up on the natural tissue simply because I really loved the look and feel of it!

What type of paper
I am a boy that doesent know so much about origami papers and I do complex origamis with printer paper of 30* 30 cm.
What paper should I use to do an really complex origami like the phoenix (Kamiya Satoshi phoenix 3.5)?
Submitted by Sara on 14 November 2014 - 8:13am Permalink
I can highly recommend the paper reviews by Ilan Garibi and Gadi Vishne. They evaluate which papers are suitable for different types of models, including complex.
Double tissue and tissue foil also work well.
Hope this helps,
