and regular paper (still, I don't think so), but what about vellum? The vellum I keep on hand is still  little heavy, and probably too opaque as well. What do you think? What do YOU use?

actually, I do use regular paper and it works out great. I'm not sure about vellum, but I tried it once with premium printer paper (slightly heavier than normal) and everything I made would end up ripping when I got near the end. For folding, I think the thinner the paper is the better in order to avoid tearing the paper.

This is great!  I did a search for origami boxes because I wanted an easy (and cheap!) way to package my Halloween candy.  I'll have to look for the book this weekend!
