Here is my technique, it works pretty well for me. You need a scalpel, a straightedge and a cutting mat with a grid patern.

-Once your sheet of paper is prepped cut one thin strip close to one edge of your sheet. This will ensure that this side is perfectly straight.
-Align this perfectly straight edge with the vertical line of the grid and use horizontal lines and straight edge to cut a right angle.
-You now have two perfectly straight edges of paper forming a perfect right angle. Fold the right angle in half, now the two straight edges of paper are one on top of the other.
-Align these two straight edges of paper with the vertical line of the grid and use the straightedge and grid to make a cut perpendicular to the two superposed straight edges.

You now have a square, if done correctly it's virtually perfect. The origami paper that are sold are usually poor quality square and you often need to recut them.

Thanks I tried this but my square still turned out Off by 2mm

>paper from Origami Shop arrives
>the big sheets were pretty sharply folded in half and in half again, and not even precisely
What are they even thinking? What if I wanted to make a tesselation from a hexagonal grid on one of those sheets?

Screw that. I'd never shop for paper there again. And I'd tell everyone and their mother not to either

something about the monopoly that store has on everything from paper to books in this hobby seems really fucking weird to me. this shit is just another issue of many with them
>>
>>567980
I wish I could but they have papers which are impossible to find anywhere else
>>
Tip..buy a dressmakers ruler or Matt with a the measurements in it!!!# then you can make perfect squares

>‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘origami’’’’’’’’’’ paper
>can't even spread the wings of the crane because it tore when tried to do it only slightly
Even printer paper works better for a crane than this.

>same kind of ‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘‘origami’’’’’’’’’’ paper
>this happens to Jeremy Shafer’s Warrior Crane (basically a simple flapping bird) after LIGHT usage — and the tear isn’t even on the modified side
