Origami – The art of paper-folding
We were taught this in elementary school in the Philippines. But I have to admit that it was not taught as some sort of origami. It was just art.
Origami is a traditional Japanese paper-folding. The word is derived from ori which means folding and kami, meaning paper. I know you are going to ask how kami became gami, apparently the transposition has something to do with voicing sequential which is truly a Japanese phenomena.
You might not know it as an origami but I am pretty sure you would have folded papers before like those fun paper boats and paper airplanes.
Below is my effort in making a water balloon, origami style. What do you know… I found a more than suitable page from a glossy magazine which advertises some product from Chanel. So my water balloon is a designer! 😉
