Marcia Joy Miller  Origami 

My goal for this website is to share the enchanting art of origami with you by providing you with free origami diagrams  that are easy to understand and will show you how to make simple origami as well as advanced creations. For your enjoyment, I have also included a gallery with photographs of origami artwork that I created.  I am an experienced teacher of origami and designer of origami projects. I am the author of the origami book, Origami for Busy People: 27 Original On-The-Go Projects, which was published by Tuttle Publishing in November 2011. In celebration of my book being published, I have included bonus ideas for a few projects from Origami for Busy People. I will be adding to the free diagrams, gallery, and bonus ideas in the future so please check back periodically. Please send your questions and comments to  -- Marcia Joy Miller

I am proud to announce that my origami book, Origami for Busy People: 27 Original On-The-Go Projects, was published in November 2011 by Tuttle Publishing. Origami for Busy People is the first book designed so that busy people can fit the fascinating art of paper folding into their hectic schedule. Through easy to follow instructions, the full-color book shows you how to fold 27 previously unpublished fun projects. The projects can be created from the 48 sheets of origami paper included with the book or from commonly available paper. You will make the projects by using only folds - no glue, no tape, no scissors.
