Sometimes you just feel like creating something, but really don’t want to change out of your sweatpants and leave the house to buy the materials. I doubt there’s a craft room in the world that doesn’t have a stockpile of paper. That’s why I’ve recently gotten in to origami.

I think everyone’s favorite gift to get, but least favorite to give is cash. Add a personal touch to a cash gift with a little bit of origami. This shows you care, and the recipient can enjoy their cash!
