Editor's Notes

September 07, 2019:

Looked for a good mix of options with printed patterns and without. Since origami has a standard paper size, there wasn't much need for variety there, though there are a few exceptions, like the QTFHR Glitter, that could appeal to someone who's looking for a new type of folding project. Some options are thicker than others, so if you have a preference for thin or thick paper, keep that in mind when making your decision.
