Jenny W. Chan is the creator of over 100 papercraft videos, with instructions on a huge range of projects, from how to fold a simple flower to how make a peacock out of a five pound note.
Jenny got started doing origami when she was just a little girl, and, like many origami beginners, she found the printed instructions that came with her origami paper pretty difficult to follow. So, later in life, when she was looking for a project, she was inspired to make the fun of origami more accessible for everyone by showing how it’s done on YouTube.
She got started about two years ago, and has since completed dozens more projects. She designs her own origami, kirigami (cut and folded paper) and other papercraft projects, as well, and tries to make every video as clear and fun to follow as possible.
She likes how accessible Post-it® Notes make origami – they’re more affordable than fancy paper, and come in lots of different colours to experiment with. They make origami into something everyone can try.
In fact, Jenny adds, “I’m a huge advocate of Post-it® Notes. I have them in every size and colour…it’s kind of an obsession.”
Jenny gets a lot of inspiration from the comments her fans leave on her YouTube videos, and uses those ideas to create new projects and crafts. Her fans’ requests for Post-it® Note origami led her to create a heart-shaped bookmark that takes special advantage of the adhesive stripe on the back of Post-it® Notes.
