I've got plenty of origami paper.. but I want to do something creative with it. I used to be a bigger origami...uh...do-er. (What do you call someone who does origami? A folder? A origamer?) I have some super cute animal print paper (like, it looks like giraffe and zebra and some other animals' skin. It's not really, though.) What should I do?

you can make paper beads with them, cover journals, cover art mats, cover wooden or other hideous beads, see these (http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/ah_antique_jewelry/article/0,,HGTV_3088_1370456,00.html), cover a box, make envelopes, etc, etc.

Hey!

A great use for origami paper is the technique of Iris Folding in cards. www.irisfolding.circleofcrafters.com

Some pretty neat stuff at this site, check out their gallery for more ideas. I think they also have a section called tea bag folding which could be cute with origami paper but I'm not too familiar with it.
