    Looking for a creative way to decorate your Christmas tree? Try your hand at making a collection of origami ornaments. Thirty festive origami projects include snowmen, Santa, Christmas trees, candy canes, stockings, stars, and gift boxes (just to name a few). The steps are diagramed with black-and-white illustrations in an easy-to-follow manner. Simple directions are also given when necessary.

    These designs are so beautiful! I love looking at the pictures even if I never make any of them! Your origami enthusiasts will love these 28 realistic, humorous and even poetic paper animals. Beginners and beyond can carefully follow the step by step instructions with photos and illustrations by Didier Boursin. Each design is so detailed and expressive. Designs are marked according to difficulty. A bone folder would be a useful tool for these projects and of course some printed origami papers will make your animals come to life. The author recommends starting with larger paper and working down to the small papers. Look for paper with a weight between 20-24 lb bond weight. You will also need scissors for a few of the critters. Beginner animals include: a fish, owl, elephant. Intermediate designs include: a panther, horse, and dog. Advanced designs include: a heron, eagle, and crab. Make them as gifts, table decorations, or as part of a geography lesson about animals from a certain region like Africa. 64pp, pb ~ Sara

    Are you interested in learning the art of origami but don't know exactly where to start? This Dover kit is specifically packaged for those dedicated to learning the art of paper folding. Don't let the title deceive you. Although this kit is supposed to be for the beginner, the projects contained in the three books by John Montroll range in skill level from simple to high-intermediate. The books included are Birds in Origami, Favorite Animals in Origami, and Easy Origami. Although the first two titles are separately available through our catalog (please see their respective descriptions for more detail), Easy Origami is not. This book provides instructions and diagrams for 32 projects ranging from a simple dog to the more advanced piano. The kit also includes 96 6" x 6" sheets of authentic origami paper (54 sheets of traditional, 24 sheet of rainbow, and 18 sheets of metallic) for you to practice your projects with. ~ Enh

    Sometimes, it does pay to wait. I wanted to stock my very favorite beginning origami book but it wasn't packaged with origami paper. Instead, the publisher carried a product called Fun with Origami that contained a different origami book and paper. I really liked the concept, but the book that came with it was not nearly as clear and simple to follow as Easy Origami. So, I held off...and - voíla - Dover packaged my favorite beginning origami book with twenty-four 7" x 7" high quality sheets of colorful origami paper and called it Fun with Easy Origami. While the title is similar to their Fun with Origami offering, the products are not the same. If you're a beginner, or you're children want to start paper folding, this is the place to start. Even children can follow the diagrams with no adult help. It includes 32 projects. Step-by-step large, clear diagrams make folding easy. Text is large, clear, and also simple. First projects have all the instructions on one page. The rest are a double-page spread so you don't have to flip back and forth. I've tested a lot of different beginning books, but this is by far the easiest to use. My twins, when they were eight years old, enthusiastically and proudly folded project after project until they ran out of paper, which inspired me to also offer paper refills (located in the Craft Supplies & Materials section). Besides helping to refine their fine motor skills, it's a great way to practice reading carefully and following directions!
