1. Fold an Origami
Choosing an origami to work on is overwhelming with the wide variety of origami that one can choose from.
If you are new to origami, we would recommend starting off with the “5-petal flower”, a project that will introduce you to intricate folding techniques that will be useful through your origami journey. Do give cranes, boats and fishes a try too as they are also great origami projects for beginners.
Go wild and be free with your origami! With up to 45 pattern designs to choose from, you can make your utmost imagination come to life with the Canon PIXMA pattern paper.
2. Build a Scrapbook
A scrapbook is a lovely way to keep your precious memories. All you have to do is to select a theme —for example, best family vacations—and build it up, bit by bit.
When choosing what to include in your scrapbook, do consider objects that will suit the chosen theme. For example, you can insert heart shape cut outs from your pattern paper into your family shots, your boarding pass, and even a small souvenir for each country you visited.
Be conscious of the colours you put in your scrapbook too; yellow will compliment cheerful pictures while red will do the same for passionate ones!
3. Wrap and Impress
Give your presents an extra special touch with the built-in pattern templates. Whether you're gifting a festive fare or a handcrafted trinket, there will always be a pattern for the occasion.
