Is there any way to color change paper so it shows any series of letters? If not, is there are a good base for doing this?

Edit: Sorry, my wording was unclear. I meant to ask if you could color change paper to form a word or name.

I know it's been done before, but I can't remember by whom. Someone else probably knows more.

It's called Typeset and it is by Jason Ku and the diagram appears at OUSA Convention 2010 book.

Recently I found a link on the internet to the complete alphabet in Origami.
Apparently these are designed by Fumiaki Shingu.
Hope this helps :)

Sorry for the misunderstanding, I was asking if it would be possible to color change a single square piece of paper to create a word.

Yes, it is possible to create entire color-changed words from a single square. I think Sy Chen has done this to some extent with his signage series. Each word is likely to require a very different design. Short words like "I" are much easier!

I do like Jeannine Mosely's simple alphabets:

Now... what about ONE-fold version?

I made a word-tessellation: gives you 3x5 blocks of pixels from a 24x24 grid, only visible when backlit

It is possible to colour change the paper to get words, but it is rather complicated, since you always need both sides of the paper. A far easier approach is to use a tessellation to write words. They are not colour changed but rather easy to write and read.

Here are some examples by Evan Zodl and Alessandro Beber:
