Origami Paper makes your origami better, it’s true.
The main reason we recommend using proper origami paper is that you’ll be better able to create neat folds. There are many different origami paper types, sizes, colours and patterns available. Some origami paper is cheap and some is expensive.
When you are just starting out with origami, a pack of 500 sheets of standard origami paper will be the best option. Nothing too fancy because you’ll not want to worry about wasting precious decorative paper.
Don’t forget, you don’t absolutely need origami paper, you can use any kind. Printer paper cut into squares is fine in a pinch.
You can also find some free printable origami paper here.
There are also some tools that will be helpful while creating origami, here is a list of the ones we recommend.
