Origami: & other paper creations is an inventive, trendy, and refined look at the popular Japanese art of paper folding. It features 40 projects and accessories ranging from jewellery, bookmarks, table decorations, children's room decorations, and projects for holiday activates and past times. Marie Claire Idees manages to construct a fresh, new look at this traditional form of paper-crafting while remaining true to the authentic and modest elements of the Japanese style.
The projects have been carefully selected to appeal to the amateur paper crafter while offering inspiration for those who are more adept at the craft. The instructions are easy to follow with detailed diagrams, templates and beautiful photography accompanying the projects.
