Review:

For anyone who loves playing with paper, this book will satisfy your desire to create 40 simple origami inspired designs. The book uses easily obtainable Japanese papers to create doilies, charms, dolls, bunting and more. There are projects for children, occasions, jewellery and special decorations. This is an excellent origami book using traditional techniques to create contemporary designs. Full instructions are given for each project with excellent illustrations. The projects are easy to follow.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts This Origami title is not for purists (the title tag line is the opt-out) - which is fine by me. Origami traditionalists allow only folding and no cutting or embellishment "cheats". If you bought this book right now, you would find a host of easy-make projects suitable as stocking fillers: the modular origami star hairgrips, some cute tree decorations, and an adorable child's tea set with a tea kettle and cups (sweet, but oh-so-simple to make). There's also an origami crane New Year Card (New Year's is super-bigtime in France). This is a card with an origami crane stuck on, plus a few paper cut-outs. You could have figured that one out yourself, surely. Same goes for the New Baby Card, which is an aperture card with a cute mini-origami bunny suspended in the opening. The Sweetie Bags with papercord handles are sweet, indeed. A few of the projects are nicely photographed no-brainers, such as the Japanese Floral Lampshade (a purchased paper lampshade embellished with cut-outs), and the Lucky Turtle Charm (admittedly winning mini-origami turtles attached to a purchased ribbon charm). And a couple of the projects are genius, think-outside-the-box ideas that you probably would never, ever do: for example, the Fish are my Cup of Tea Teabags, in which you make your own fish-shaped teabags (which are stitched together on the sewing machine!). This title is not meant to be a children's book, but it would make a fine gift for an older child with a interest in origami and papercrafts. There are 40 projects in this book - a bit of a stretch. The chapter headings are well-chosen: Jewellery and Lucky Charms (who but a child would wear origami jewellery?), Office Stationery, Decorations for the Home, At the Table, Celebrations, and For Children. Plusses: difficulty level for each project is indicated.The step-by-step origami folding diagrams are in full colour and are very clear. To sum up: a pleasant choice for origami beginners.-thepapercraftpost.blogspot.co.uk
