He enjoys finding just the right creation for someone special and making it for them. It’s not unusual for me to find folded paper in the car and around the house. I really don’t mind because it’s just really cool! I thought this a perfect subject for my “O” in Blogging through the Alphabet so I did a little research. I found the website for the Origami Resource Center. According to their site, Origami is a Japanese art from, however, paper did not originate in Japan so no one is really sure if Origami originated in Japan.
