Make sure the paper is a perfect square (not a rectangular) and begin with a square that is not too small. Be really precise when you fold paper.
And practice makes perfect.

  You can, get a webcam to save stuff on your computer.

Mine has seen amazing things.

Hoho.

  I can make cranes and one type of fish from memory as well as little 3-D stars. Most books are easy enough to follow once you figure out how they are denoting each different type of fold. Start with the easy ones at the beginning if only to get an understanding of the notation.

Word of note: origami is much harder after a couple drinks. For best results, do sober. (I have my gradschool supervisor to thank for that lesson.)

  No webcam.

And Jenn, i can make those little 3D stars too. They tend to amaze people, don't they?

  libra: Do you find that most people seem to think that they are candy or contain chocolate? I get that all of the time.

  haha, i don't think i've ever gotten that. But people do have a tendency to want to squish them to see what's inside. Or they ask if I blew them up like a balloon or something to make them puffy.

  I once made an origami 1/4 scale replica of Robert Fulton's steam engine. It was amazing, but, sadly, it caught fire the first time i tried to use it.

What do you think of a Tom Waits album of John Denver covers ?

Okay.... somebody please tell me where this is from. I had never heard it as of two weeks ago and suddenly I'm hearing it all over the place.

Thanks, Hif!
I don't know what I'd think of a Waits album of Denver covers :) I'm a recent Waits addict, to tell you the truth. With the 4 or 5 albums I've heard so far, Small Change is my favourite.

Small Change is my favorite as well.
I bought it on vinyl when it was new, way back in the mid 70's.
Great album cover too ;)
