The first Japanese art that many people encounter is the art of paper folding: origami! In this video, Japan Fan Farah from Pakistan folds a cute little origami cat. A step by step follow along video.
As most Japan Fans probably already know, “Origami” is the word for the Japanese art of folding paper (Japanese: 折り紙, “ori”, folding, and “kami”, paper). It is a fun hobby that requires little special knowledge or materials and can give you great satisfaction.
Easy Origami Cat – step by step
Japan Fan Farah from Pakistan is an enthusiastic DIYer. When she saw this easy origami cat head, she immediately wanted to share with us another model she knew. Click on the video below to see how to fold this cute little cat. Thank you, Farah!
By the way, did you also see Farah’s first video? In it she folds cute origami foxes. Very sweet and not difficult to fold (at all), these would make a very nice gift for a friend.
