Origami is usually recognized as an art activity that requires a lot of folding to convert a plain sheet of paper into a piece of art. As mathematicians we asked a question what is the lower number of crease lines that create a non-trivial origami model. And we have found that the answer is: zero lines.

The paper presents a method that leads to astonishing origami models without any single crease line.
