Please post images that print well for use as origami paper! I routinely "chop up" a page to easily get 12 to 20+ squares out of a single print.
Multi-pattern images are really cool... allowing for several squares each with individual patterns.
Any good pattern that'll work for several squares with the same/similar patterns.
Black & White can be really cool when printed onto color papers.

What's the best way to get custom origami paper? Are there any good services that can do custom prints, or is it easy enough to just print on white origami paper at home?
I will either buy "professional" origami paper that is patterned or foil paper, usually "standard size".

Or I'll print out a cool pattern and use scissors to chop it up into several (usually at least 12, or [a lot?[ more), to use as origami paper.

This thread is to help find more patterns to PRINT AT HOME and chop up into "custom" origami papers.

My best trick to get an accurate "straight cut" is to make a solid fold (usually in half) and then just simply CUT OFF [ONLY] THE CREASE! It's much easier to cut a straight line when there is a line to cut on... with a crease, the ONLY part you DO NOT want to have "left over" is THE CREASE ITSELF!

Good Luck! And please, POST SOME PATTERNS that work as origami paper!

It's actually sized for Legal Size paper, which is a few inches (considerably) longer than Letter Paper. It still prints good for Letter Size, BUT you lose some of those squares (gotta "crop" it).

People, please... post some patterns!!!
I can't be the only one printing my own custom origami paper, right?!
Yes, you are...
I do that sometimes, but my printer kinda sucks. I tried to print out one of the patterns you posted and it came out faded and in low res for some reason, still I made an origami gift bag out of it..
This one works well to "stretch" in Landscape orientation, to full size of letter paper...
Another multi-pattern for y'all

Bro go on pinterest and search origami patterns or to get traditional Japanese designs search Wafu Moyou in Japanese which would be 和風模様
Italian Tile Patterns are very pretty you can search them up
This one is an obscure size, so you'll have to crop it regardless of your paper size... but this one does make for some cool paper!

Please people, post some patterns! This ain't about finding Other Resources for these patterns... it's about posting the one's you've already got on your own computer! Often WG stuff has cool patterns that'll work for custom origami papers! Post whatcha got!
