Have you ever tried ORIGAMI ?
This traditional Japanese art of paper folding started at the end of the 17th century AD and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques so that the use of scissors or glue are not necessary at all.
The number of basic origami folds is small, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. The best known origami model is probably the Japanese paper crane (large bird with long legs and a long neck).
