This impressive origami kit contains everything you need to create beautiful, geometric origami sculptures.

Art and math intertwine in exciting and complex new ways in Geometric Origami Kit. World-renowned origami artists Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander bring you this paper craft kit where folding a piece of paper creates a new and wondrous origami object. In Geometric Origami, the initial folds are easily created, but once the basic building blocks are ready, the intricate combining of these pieces form new geometric origami sculptures that interlock into interchangeable origami puzzles. Ideal for demonstrating the sophistication and wonder of geometry, they can also be great conversation starting decorations for the home or office. This kit and DVD provide the beginning folder with a series of fun, modular origami projects that represent a wide variety of subjects and techniques.

This origami kit includes:

  • Full-color 64-page book
  • Step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow diagrams
  • DVD with video tutorials
  • Videos are also streamable or downloadable online
  • 120 sheets of durable, authentic origami paper
  • A variety of different colors
At a glance, Geometric Origami may seem too difficult to attempt, but once the methods are broken down and explained they are quite simple and can be completed by children and or beginning origami students. The intricate, multi-paper origami sculptures will put your paper folding skills on a whole new level and are excellent for use in the classroom, for art, math or geometry investigations.

Origami projects include:
  • Compass Star
  • Aster
  • Lightning Bolt Octahedron
  • Butterfly Ball
  • Picture Cube
  • Modular Crane
  • Sonobe Module and Cube
  • Magic Rose Cube

From the Author:

"Geometric Origami" includes a unique collection of patterned papers, which I designed especially for this kit. You can use many kinds of found papers, too! So feel free to reuse, recycle, and re-purpose old calendars and magazine pages, junk mail, wrapping papers and gift cards.

The included video DVD contains full demonstrations, by me, for every project. This is especially helpful when learning how to assemble each project. You can use pause and play as needed, and you can easily review any step as often as needed.

We are especially pleased to be able to include the famous "Magic Rose Cube" project, along with several previously unpublished works. There are projects ranging from simple to upper intermediate; so this is a kit that you can grow into.

Michael LaFosse, author
