Traditional origami base

The Book fold is a traditional origami base and it is so named because, once the paper is folded in half, it looks like a book. It is the simplest of folds and can be used to make many simple origami models. This fold is also the foundation of the cupboard fold. Models of the House, Windmill, Rose, Kusudama, Napkins and Box from practical lessons start with the book fold.
