Alright..I have a bit of a dilemma..  I want to decorate something with origami paper, but I need something bigger than the two sizes that I normally find (I can't remember the exact dimensions) I want to say it's 6" X 6".  Anyway, I need paper BIGGER than that, but I'm having a difficult time finding it.  Any suggestions would be more than welcome!!

do you have a hungates in your area?  I haven't been to the local one in a while but I seem to remember there being standard size origami paper as well as the larger sizes.

No, unfortunately not.  Only craft stores I've seen around here are JoAnn's and Michael's.  Sad.

Thanks so much for the links!  Cheesy

However, I'm looking for *fancy* origami paper...the printed kind.. I found a paper that I just loooove, which I got from Michael's, but the company name and info is in some sort of asian language and I can't read it.  Otherwise, I'd try to contact them to order larger sizes..

I think the particular kind of origami paper is the "washi" kind.  It's rice paper that feels also like cloth and has neat little patterns on them..

How big are you looking for?  These aren't origami papers, but are large sheets of Japanese paper which you could cut down to any size you wish.

Also, this one has origami paper and some printed larger sheets and there are a bunch of stores in Washington, so there might be one near you.  http://www.paperzone.com/catalog/index.php/cPath/26_156

I actually found some nice paper at Michaels.  It was in the fine art section, with the fancy brushes and paints and stuff.  This was a few years ago, but I'm sure they still carry it.  Good luck!

I think my biggest problem is not finding the nice paper, but finding sheets big enough so I don't have to try to find a bunch of little sheets that match.  For instance, there's this pack of origami paper at michaels that I absolutely love, however, there's only one sheet of it in each pack..and each pack costs $5.  Sad 

Maybe I'm just too picky..

maybe you shouldn't be looking for origami paper --- try looking for wrapping paper with origami print. (the local japanese store uses it to wrap gifts and such ... very pretty)
