Creating boxes, wallets and ornaments from paper is inexpensive, easy and fun - and they can also be made quickly to suit specific occasions. Gift boxes with a personal touch are always worth the effort, and make even a little present seem that much more special, while novelty items, like the jumping frog, will entertain and amuse. Wallets, place cards, serving boxes for nuts and sweetmeats, individual gift boxes, flowers for decoration, novelty shapes - the range of things that can be made from paper or stiff card is almost endless. Using a different colour or type of paper or combining standard parts in a different way means that a few basic designs can be used again and again. The simple origami projects detailed in the book will and add colour, style and fun to your home and the kit contains 25 sheets of decorative art paper to start you folding. Creating these elegant origami items is made easy, with clear, step-by-step instructions and diagrams, combined with an inspirational photograph of the finished item. The kit contains a 165 X 165mm, 64 page book, and 25 sheets of decorative art paper.
