Something as simple as a few diagonal and horizontal folds can create the most interesting natural curvature in a flat sheet of paper. It's basically just a crease pattern of X's and some horizontal lines. How simple is that? I experimented with dividing the paper into 8ths, then 16ths. The 8ths proved to be the perfect number, while the 16ths were actually very tricky as the paper starts to try and curl into itself.

The next step is to stretch and compress the crease pattern by folding on papers with different dimensions (these were done on square sheets) and see how those turn out. Hurray, another glorious technique from Paul Jackson's Folding Techniques for Product Designers.
