Folding a kimono from stiffened fabric seems very appropriate, as it will reflect the texture of kimonos. It can be affixed to a blank greeting card. In our experience many origami cards are treasured by the recipients, who may even frame them. The dimensions in the instructions will result in a kimono 4 inches (10 cm) wide. You can make kimonos in other sizes by using bigger or smaller pieces of stiffened fabric in the proportion of three times as long as wide.
