“Ori” means folding, gami (or rather kami) means paper, so origami literally means folding paper.
Normally the use of glue or cuts are not allowed and art pieces made by these techniques are not considered to be origami works.
When glue and cuts are used in the process then it is usually called kirigami.
Although origami is generally considered to be of a Japanese origin, there are evidences that other cultures around the world had their independent traditions of paper folding.
The list of things that could be made by origami is endless, but please let us name some that are used in our everyday lives:
paper cup, salt keeper, book cover, gift wrap, flower wrap, candy wrap, chopsticks wrap, utensil wrap, gift decoration, gift box, snack box, envelope, toothpick holder, and a wallet (kirigami):
