My flappy bird, I've been practising a "bonsai" version of origami for a while now.

Wanting to go from 'mini' to 'micro', but finding the right paper has been challenging (or my hands are too large ).
By god this is epic. I will not show it to my son. Else like regular origami he will make me do it citing his clumsiness !

Do share the links for sourcing this kind of paper, or the specs with which i can make it myself at home?

This one's just regular paper from a legal pad. I find it easier to stay awake in boring meetings if I'm trying to do one of these under the table

I think your son may actually find it easier to go 'bonsai' because of nimbler fingers ( sigh ! ).

Ultimately, I'd like to use paper that's the size of a stamp, but I think that's going to require thinner & smoother paper, & possibly forceps, & may be a magnifying glass !
