Love origami but not sure how to decode the complicated instructions found in books? Having trouble visualising just what a valley fold is as compared to a mountain fold? Thanks to Heather, an American woman who has been living in Japan for 14 years, origami can be entirely possible for all of us! She creates clear and easy-to-follow video tutorials that take viewers through each step of folding projects which range from very simple to quite complicated, giving you the chance to pause, back up, re-watch, and see exactly which bit of paper is meant to tuck into which crease.
Luckily for us at BAB, Heather has agreed to regularly share videos with our community, making it easy for you to integrate a bit of this traditional Japanese craft into your regular life. Below is a tutorial for a hamburger, tomato, and fried egg! It might not be the first thing you associate with origami, but folding these will give you the perfect play food for your little ones, or just a chance to get excited about early summer BBQs.
