Feeling stressed? Origami to the rescue!

If you have paper and ten minutes, you're ready to fold some adorbs origami! It helps you wind down after a stressful day, stay off your phone (once you've mastered the tutorials, of course), and you can show off your creations to friends. We've rounded up some easy tutorials below, so take a deep breath and let the folding begin!

The 5-Pointed Star
