Origami Swallowtail Butterfly (first version)
When individuals become really involved in the art of origami they attempt tougher projects that require several sections. Skilled origamists will take on projects such as elaborate ships, buildings, people and objects involving concentration and logical thinking. When people reach this level in origami, often they begin to design their own compositions.
Once starting a project, it's difficult to stop until the desired result is achieved. It may take several attempts but eventually the results will be top-notch. Origami has grown in popularity as a teaching tool. Educators and teachers are using origami in the classroom. This activity has proven to be effective in teaching children to be patient and attentive.
If you don't open the book before making the second fold you end up with the handkerchief fold which gives you a small square with four layers of paper one on top of the other. The Cupboard - using a square piece of paper make the book fold then open the paper and take each outside edge and fold it to the center line.
Not all designs are combinations or parts of other bases; some like the box pleat are completely original. Some origamists saw the base as a set of areas each independent of the other differing only in their length and arrangement. With this in mind they went on to develop computer programs that are capable of doing all the math necessary to generate crease patterns for any base from a given length and area arrangement.
Individuals who are really skilled and serious about origami work quite hard to design and create complex objects to be showcased and judged at competitions. Anyone could enjoy origami if they were interested. It is definitely an activity that requires interest. The folding process demands careful attention and without it the intended result would likely not be achieved.
