Origami terms to note:
- Precrease: Marking the paper by folding and unfolding. When we pre-crease, we are setting the stage for later steps in the folding process. Precreases are usually made when we begin a set of folds.
- Soft-roll fold: to fold the paper very softly as if rolling, but without making a crease.
- Lock: When locking occurs, an area of the paper is fixed at a particular configuration so that it stays in place and cannot be easily unfolded.
