Consequently, the folds are all relatively simple and easy. Each pattern is divided into one of four difficulty levels (very easy, easy, intermediate, and hard), but even the more challenging folds are still quite basic. Remember, this blog is designed for beginners.
The patterns are designed to teach a user how to execute the folds - they are not intended to be displayed (after all, they will have numbers and lines visible). Once you complete a pattern satisfactorily, fold it again on scrap paper without the instructions. Finally, once you know the folds quite well, use nice paper which can be displayed.
Think of these patterns are training wheels - use them to start out, but once you can fold/ride without the training wheels, get rid of them and go off on your own. Experiment by making changes and personalizing these designs. Play with different types of papers. Try adding details and designs with pens or markers - both before folding and after. And most importantly, have fun with these folds!
