Book Overview

Make traditional, simple and fun papercraft models with this easy origami book and paper kit.

The ancient art of origami originated in Japan, where it is steeped in traditional values. The 20 models presented in this kit include many with strong symbolic meanings, such as the carp, the frog and the crane, which symbolize longevity, good luck and perseverance.

Also included in this kit are paper models which have practical uses, such as a bag in which to store spices or powdered medications, the masu box for containing small gifts, and uniquely shaped notes with elaborate closures. The more playful side of origami is represented as well: the stylized sumo wrestler with realistic moves has entertained Japanese children for centuries, and the paper Samurai hat is a favorite of kids.

This origami kit contains:

  • A full color, 96-page book
  • Step-by-step folding instructions
  • 20 classic origami projects
  • 72 sheets of 6'' x 6'' folding papers
  • Double-sided color
  • 20 beautiful patterns
  • Instructional DVD with 100 minutes of video tutorials
  • Videos are also streamable or downloadable online

Origami is an ideal activity for children since paper folding develops dexterity and creativity. Origami is also a craft based on a few fundamental 3D folding techniques. Japanese Origami for Read More chevron_right

The guides are better than what I had before, but still not what I was looking for. The paper is thinnish and the wrinkles appear when you fold the paper.

   Maybe not entry level beginners, but perhaps for aspiring intermediate-level beginners.
This set comes with a book with explanations and tutorials, a DVD and a few fairly good origami papers of 6 inches in the square with one solid side and a pattern side. The size of the box belies the content that it is mostly dead-space, supposedly to better protect the origami papers during transit. The origami models offered in the book and DVD vary in skill level from the moderate beginner to the aspiring intermediate origamist at best. I do not recommend this for younger people who have folded their first model.

   Just OK
was looking for books - turned out to be more of a booklet. I should have paid better attention, but there are also so many better options out there than this. Very small amount of paper, and the quality seemed worse than other tuttle papers I purchased. EXTREMELY basic designs and very few of them. Honestly, you're better off buying a Tuttle paperback. They all come with directions for some basic designs and are easier to understand and the paper is of better quality. I won 't buy another one of these kits.

   Fun had by many!
I bought this kit to learn how to make cranes for my upcoming milestone celebration at our family cottages. Due to Covid, we postponed our vacation for a year. The box and papers were beautiful and the book was comprehensive and ordered by difficulty. The cranes were in difficulty midway. But in 2 weeks, I managed to make 5. I 'd taken the kit down to make more on the site. Imagine my delight when my daughter returned with an origami desk she made for ME. They had so much fun with the kit that she brought it back to Boulder with her! Everything was a hit in this kit.

   Builds up your experience
There are some that are definitely difficult, but after going through the first 15 you have gotten better and might be ready for the last 5. The pieces of paper are very pretty, there are an array of patterns, some have flowers and some are not, which is nice since it is a gift to my 12 year old son. He is saving the flower paper to make origami gifts for me and my lady family members. I like that the paper is stored in the book, but is not bound in the book. When we get more paper, we can store it again in the book. The history of origami is fun for any history buff out there. I highly recommend ''.

   TERRIBLE instructions and definitely not a beginner book
There was a good amount of paper included that seemed to be pretty decent in quality, and the patterns were also very attractive. About it, that is for the good news. The instructions are abysmal at best and are certainly not suitable for beginning folders. Within the first 10 minutes of opening the set, I saw folds that I was instructed to make, but were never explaineddemonstrated. The instructions also often forget vital steps and simply repeat on the other layers. Seriously, buy some paper and get on YouTube. This book is of intermediate level and I wouldn 't recommend starting with it if you're new to folding.

   Disappointed
The book will say to make a xxxfold, but there is not a picture to see how to do it. I thought about throwing it away, but haven 't yet. I put it in the closet.

   Love this! I am a high school teacher and ...
This is so much fun! I am a high school teacher and bought this for some of my lunch time students. These are several shy students who have attended this group to find friends. They love creating origami and share stories, laugh and chat while creating. Some female and male students seem to really like origami and thought that this book was easy to follow.

   Fantastic!
This was the best craft project I spent money on. The DVD was so helpful... it could have had better views of the folds because they go a little fast, but as long as you have a remote to replay, you're all good. The papers are colorful and plentiful! I can now do this without the video and I have created the cutest baby mobiles for my 10 month old and her daycare. It was much easier than I expected.

   Busy hands
I have made a piano, a drinking cup, a samurai hat, a carp, a kimono, and a Masu box. Started on the Star Box. There is a beautiful selection of included papers.
