World's Best Origami Book Review and Giveaway!





For kids




 I recently received the World's Best Origami book for review. Origami is a ancient Japanese art form. With that being said I have always wanted to learn how to do Origami. My grandmother on my mom's side of the family was full blooded Japanese and she would always be making something with her candy wrappers. She mostly made beautiful swans. The swan is one of the easiest to learn to make. My swans aren't as pretty as hers where as I am still working on it. But it sure does make me miss her.

Do you remember folding paper into a hand-held fortune teller, paper airplane or secret note square? Whether a fortune teller novice or a seasoned paper-folding expert, the new book World's Best Origami  challenges readers with more than 100 of the most unique and best-loved origami patterns ever created.

Professional origami artist, Nick Robinson, guides readers through the process of folding paper. Projects are rated from beginner to advanced and include everything from the traditional swan and poppy box to truly amazing pieces such as a geodetic tower and a jet plane! Each diagram is clearly displayed with easy-to-understand folding instructions for a perfect outcome every time.

When beginning a new hobby, it's easy to rush into the most challenging or exciting project available. I know I catch myself doing that all the time. This many times leads to frustration and giving up and in the case of origami it leads to lots of wasted paper. The World's Best Origami provides the first-time folder with the basics and progresses towards more difficult models. It also includes a thorough refresher course for more experienced folders. This book teaches readers how to:
  • Create the ideal environment to fold in
  • Choose the ideal paper for each project
  • Read an origami folding diagram
  • Make the basic folds more complicated works are founded upon
  • Create birds, animals, flowers, people, containers, and more from step-by-step.
It also includes information on what to do after the basics have been mastered. How to establish a style, get creative, join and origami club, and inspire others are also covered with in the chapters.

One of my lucky readers will win their own copy of World's Best Origami!
