This model is very beautiful ofcourse:

But if you've never folded a model
before, it's not a good model to start
                                                               Origami Unicorn by Roman Diaz

There are many videos and sites with origami instructions on the internet nowadays.
These instructions vary from very easy to almost impossible to fold,
This is a good site for beginners:    

It contains instructions for these kind of origami models:

                        Dice                                                       Watch

origami dices

                        Dress                                                     Panda

in the search box and you'll get a long list of videos with nice instructions.

If you don't even know the difference between a valley-fold and a mountain-fold,
click here for a short explanation about basic folds (at my own site)

Next to basic folds you have basic shapes. These are shapes which you fold before the
details of the model are folded.

A good example is the bird base:

Many different types of models
can be folded from this bird base

a bird for example.......

You could buy special expensive origami paper for folding your models, but
packs of coloured a4 papers or gift wrap papers are also fine for folding
nice models.
I folded these firework rockets from gift wrap paper, for example:

And these are some models which I folded from coloured a4 papers:

You also don't need to buy expensive books to get instructions for good models,
almost all of these instructions are on the internet too nowadays. Books are
still great to give as a present ofcourse, or just to have something special for yourself.
More and more newer books go with a pack of origami papers which are special
designed for the models of that book. These books can be even cheaper than
buying a pack of 'real' origami paper.

These are some more fun beginner-models of myself:

    Goldfish                    French Fries             Candy                        Hearts

origami candy

Candy Cane - The cute paper with red lines makes the model look like a real candy cane

Origami Box - Cute Kawaii Polka Dot box with Lid, great for storing tiny things

Origami Bookmark - White bookmark with a large red heart, could be nice as a gift

Origami Flying Spinning Top - This one could be a little to hard, but it's a great toy

Are these models still to difficult for you?
Patience, if you can't fold a model after a few tries, just lay it aside and try again later or
wait until the next day. If you still don't succeed folding it, forget the model, and try to
find another one you like (this is how I did it when I couldn't design my own models yet)
