Of Paper Folding, Geogebra and Conics

The conics include circle, ellipse, parabola, hyperbola and a pair of intersecting lines. The first and the last can be readily drawn on paper, but there are no constructions for the remaining three using compasses and straight edge. Paper folding
(to be described presently) provided one such way to generate the three remaining conics on paper without much difficulty.
