I have two books that explain the basic folds really well.
The Origami Handbook
Hermes House Publishers
Absolute Beginner's Origami: The Simple Three-Stage Guide to Creating
Both of these books have photo's of the steps in folding, instead of
hand drawn diagrams, throughout the book. If you have a Border's
bookstore near you, you may want to check to see if the first one is
still on sale (I got my copy for $5.99 plus tax.)
Let me know if this helps...

I purchased two books last week. "Origami FLowers" and "Playful
Origami". I am mainly interested in making origami flowers right
now. I have always had and still am having problems understanding
how to do the basic folds and diagrams. Do any of you know of any
simple instructions online, OR of a video that shows the basics.
