Yesterday I saw Kraft paper on sale for $1.00. I have heard of it used in origami, but what is it like :? ? If its good I'll go buy a ton of it. :D

Kraft paper is strong, and keeps a crease well.
But do you know the weight of the paper offered? There are many
kinds of Kraft paper. You need to get a thinner kind
for the more complex models.

combined with aluminium foil, it's nearly perfect for folding :)
I once got a biiiiig role of 37g kraftpaper for a song.
as said before, there are many kinds of kraftpaper (in weight and quality). you should give it a try, and if you like it you can buy the rest :)

good kraftpaper is good for complex folding, because it hardly tears, even when folding insects or other complex stuff.

Hmm, I'll have to go buy a roll :) . I'm not sure what weight it is :? ,but it was made by the people who make duct tape. I'll let you know how it turns out.
