New Description:
A folk art, a creative art, a mathematical puzzle, a game-- all of these terms describe origami. Some people are attracted to origami for its simplicity, while others marvel at the minds of people who can devise the patterns for such ingenious creations. Some look to origami as a way to entertain, while others find it has a calming, relaxing effect.

Origami is unique among paper crafts in that it requires no materials other than the paper itself. Cutting, gluing, or drawing on the paper is avoided, using only paper folding to create the desired result. No special skills or artistic talent are needed for origami, although a good amount of patience and perseverance are very helpful. Models can be folded by following instructions exactly. Experimenting with different folds may lead to a totally new, original paper-fold.

Designing a "model" (folded piece of paper) is an art in itself. Even following a diagram (set of instructions) resembles a performance: it can be done mechanically, or "life" can be breathed onto the model, lending it part of the folder's personality.

There are several "styles" of origami. Many modern folders regard folding from a single square sheet, with no cuts, a more refined expression of art.
All the models included here can be made from a single sheet, with no cuts. The puzzle of origami is simplified by animation rather than complex diagrams.

Socks
