You can use any type of paper to make origami; although origami paper is the most suitable.

Some are one-coloured pieces of paper, some are two-coloured pieces of paper and some are patterened.
They use it instead of normal everyday copy paper. In addition you can use foil backed paper, it is just a thin sheet of foil glued to a sheet of thin paper. You can also glue tissue paper on a piece of aluminum foil. Then glue another piece of tissue foil on the other side so it is created like a sandwich.
