Although most people practice origami primarily for their personal enjoyment, there are a few enterprising crafters who manage to turn their love of paper folding into an extra source of income. One way in which origami enthusiasts can earn some extra cash is by selling their creations on Etsy. This website offers an online marketplace for selling handmade goods, including origami creations. Sellers pay a small fee to have their items listed in a personalized shop, plus a percentage of the profit if the item is sold.

You can find a wide variety of origami projects for sale via Etsy. For example, Shut Up and Fold features an assortment of colorful greeting cards, boxes, and decorative objects for the home, all of which are very reasonably priced. Origami Mill sells origami cranes in various colors and sizes. Dana's Paper Flowers focuses exclusively on providing kusudama flowers for bridal showers, weddings, and other special occasions.

If you're interested in learning more about how to sell your origami creations, About Arts/Crafts Businesses has an extensive series of articles devoted to creating and maintaining your own Etsy shop.
