Origami is one of the simplest and oldest forms of paper art. A few folds and olla...you get a beautiful sofa, bird, animal, mountains, you name it and it is there.

As a beginner do not be disheartened if you get it right the first time. Also do not give up if you are not able to complete it and get the final look. Keep trying should be your motto.

Get some origami papers which are plain coloured and uncut, you can also settle for simple paper or even a newspaper. Cut them into exact squares and you are ready to begin. If you get yourself some origami books or download the instructions from the net you will understand the directions given. Because side by side directions, the matter is also given, this way you will understand the workings even better.

Here's how to make a Chair: take a square sheet of paper. If you want to check if it is a square then fold it diagonally. If the points meet you know it is a square. Else cut off the excess paper.

Step 1: Fold it horizontally, and then fold it again. It will look like a small square.
Step 2: Open the folds and bring each of the four points to the centre.
Step 3: Turn to the back and once again bring the points to the centre.
Step 4: Turn it back one last time and bring all the points together.
Step 5: Turn back and open the small squares with your finger.
Step 6: Now fold back and press three of the sides opened and fold one forward. Release the pressure to let the folds take their position.

Your chair is ready. You can also fold back all sides to make a table. This way make, 1 table and 4 chairs for a perfect tea setting.
