My Origami Business

When I was five years old, my cousin gave me an origami set and I had no idea or interest in it. I loved doing crafts but this was way too difficult for me. Four years later in school, we were making origami cranes for a peace project and I was hooked. I now do origami all the time.


During the summer, I not only took out a ton of books from the library but I also used on demand activity television shows to learn as much origami as I could. I also downloaded origami books and used your website, origami-fun.com! I now think I can call myself an origami master or at least my mother thinks so. I have a special container to put all my origami creations in so that she won't or anyone else won't step or sit on them!

When I returned to 4th grade this year, my fellow students and teachers were very impressed with my origami. Many have asked me to make certain pieces for them. So I have a list and one by one, I deliver my origami pieces to them. Favorites include the box, star box, a crane, a lily, fortune tellers, and all sorts of flowers and animals.

My mother thinks I should make this into a craft business and I am considering it? maybe bouquets of flowers for place settings, keepsake boxes and other similar things. One box I made was six sheets together to make one colorful big one!

I like this paper art as it is cheap but very fine. If anyone wants to learn it, there are many guide lines available online. Even your blog is contributing a lot in promoting Origami. You have very good chance of writing a good resume with the help of resume writing service.

Origami NEW

In Japanese Origami means craft. It is very popular in Japan. Children start learning it at an early age and I found the information from top essay writing ratings. Learning is not easy and it will take it's own time and once you are become master you command lot of respect in the society. I am sending my son Origami school for more than one year.

A few tips
by: Origami guy

If you get enough requests, I think you should go for it. I as well have a small origami business at my school. If you do decide to do try it,I suggest a price of fifty cents or less and maybe a dollar for bigger projects.
A good time frame would be a week to two weeks. Just make sure you don't take on too many projects at once; a late delivery will make your customer upset. Also, once you get good enough, you could take requests for ANYTHING, like me. Just keep in mind, if you do find yourself with too many orders and feel like quitting, take a vacation, it really helps (I would know!). I also suggest you use foil paper for some models; people will appreciate them more, be more willing to pay fifty cents, and will be more likely to show them off and give you some publicity.
Most importantly, if you do decide to have a business, make sure your customer is satisfied and at least SOME of your profits go into buying paper.

My first sucessful minibusiness
by: Anonymous

I sell small things to people in my school such as cranes, birds, ninja stars, and small decorative items. You should try because I have folded a lot of simple origami and have made �30 ($18) from it. Try.
