Origami - Polo Shirt

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper. Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding. Animals, toys and geometric shapes,  are among the models that are popular to make.

I learned the art of origami when I was in elementary. Believe me, this is the only origami I know up to this time. 

As I waited for my friends, Edwin and Edgar, to arrive for our lunch at Lola Maria's Restaurant, I used the time to make a letter for my inaanak, Nicoy (Edwin's son).  

Maybe, some of you does not even know how to do an origami? Why not try now.  

Step 1.  Divide/fold paper into four

Step 2.  Fold back off the top of the paper.

Step 3.  Bring top corners together toward the center line.
Step 4. Fold the bottom corners off the center line.

Step 5. Bring bottom edge of paper up to fit under the collar.
