Paper Review: Origami Paper from Midori

Thanks to Misc-store, Papercake was introduced to this great Origami paper designed by the Japanese stationery brand – Midori.

The design is very cute and modern. The paper has the perfect weight for Origami, crispy and strong. The folding experience is very enjoyable! Each pack comes with 20 sheets, 2-4 patterns. The size is also standard, 15cm x 15cm. Not just for Origami, the paper is also very suitable for gift wrapping. Midori has its own recipe books for that!

Here are some examples that I created with the paper
