Orchid 500 Sheet Origami Paper Review

When I was in elementary school in the Philippines, Origami became a hit in our school. My mom would buy me the Origami books with a few sheets of Origami paper inside. When I've used up all the Origami paper, I would then cut out my own Origami-sized paper using an 8 1/2 inch colored paper. It's fun and it has been more than a decade since I've done Origami..
What is Origami? Well, this definition stuck to me: Origami is the art of folding paper into beautiful shapes and objects.

When I received the Orchid 500 Sheet Origami Paper, I was so excited to do Origami again and teach my daughters how to do simple Origami. The Orchid Origami Paper came in 10 beautiful, vibrant colors: green, red, sky blue, light pink, lavender, dark pink, light green, yellow, light blue,and orange. Here is a quick product description from the company:

BRIGHT COLORS: Comes in 10 beautiful, vibrant colors that will give you endless amounts of color combinations! Creativity goes beyond just the paper.
HIGH QUALITY: Non-toxic and durable, everyone can get in the paper folding fun. Perfect for schools, teachers, or at-home use. (Not advisable for children under 3)
EASY TO FOLD: The right amount of thickness allows you to bend, fold, and manipulate the paper to your desired effect, without superficial tearing.
PERFECT SIZE: At 15cm x 15cm and 80 GSM of thickness, there’s no better origami paper on the market for practicing and creating advance modular/intricate designs. And it won’t curl at the edges!
BUILD SKILLS AND HAVE FUN: Origami is about having fun, creating something new, and sharing your creations with friends and loved ones.

The Orchid Origami papers are 6 x 6 inches in size. In Origami, the paper should be cut equally and straight in order to do the perfect Origami. With the Orchid Origami papers, the paper are slightly misaligned when I start to fold them, but it's very subtle that I can still make pretty Origami art.
 I searched for some Origami art design and when my 6 year old daughter saw me folding, she asked what I'm doing. I did a tulip with a stem, a vase and a rabbit. My 4 year old daughter asked for the rabbit while my 6 year old daughter asked for the tulip and the vase.
The Orchid Origami paper has the perfect thickness to fold the paper. The colors doesn't peel or crease even when I fold the paper numerous times. I like the variety of colors available in each pack because I can do different Origami designs. The colors are very bright which makes the Origami folded paper I do pretty and vibrant.

With 50 pieces of Orchid Origami Paper for each color, I can make lots of Origami patterns. My daughters, specially my 6 year old, can also practice basic and simple Origami designs which she liked very much.

The Orchid Origami paper are high quality and I like how we can make various Origami art with 1 pack.
