1. Diagrams and Symbols
When you are new to origami crafting, you will really look for books that will help you in making that origami. Once you find one, always pay attention to the diagrams and symbols it showed in the instructions. These will be really important once you start doing the craft.

2. First Move
The first five to ten folds you make in a paper are the most important folds you make. For these folds will be the foundation of your model. The more folds you make, the more it gets out of control. The more folds made, the harder it is to fold especially when the fold you made earlier was not right. So when you start, always make the edges line up and folded properly.

3. Folding Place
When selecting a place to do origami, choose a place with a flat desk where you can put all your necessary things. Though flat desk help you in folding, it is still advisable to fold it securely with your hands. The folds will be thinner and you can make the edges line up correctly.

4. Take A Break
Just like any other thing anywhere like working at the office, schooling, playing sports and studying; they all have this time to stop doing what they do and have a break. This break time helps you relax your mind and body. It also helps you analyze what you have been doing and if you are doing it right.

5. Enjoy everything
While doing your origami, always pay attention to what you are doing and enjoy it. Though you are only making simple models, it still has complex folds. But in the end this will be rewarding, seeing that out of paper pieces you made a wonderful model that you will proudly display in your home.
