GIVEAWAY CLOSED – CONGRATULATIONS ADRIAN!
Another Giveaway! Read on.
Have you ever made paper airplanes? If you have, then you’ve created origami, an ancient Japanese art form.
The first chapter covers the basics including papers, tips on proper folding, the different folds, making shapes, and other beginner information.
The author, Nick Robinson, cautions the beginner to master the basics before jumping to the more complex designs. It was as if he were watching me since my first inclination was to find that one special design I wanted to make. I found it – an angel – which was rated as one of the most difficult design in the book!
After the basics are covered, his chapters are divided into birds, flowers, people, containers, geometric designs, and more. Every shape contains clear step-by-step instructions with illustrations and rated on a scale of difficulty from one to five.
A great reference book for your craft library or Christmas gift for kids of all ages, this book could also serve as a textbook for an origami class. The author takes some of the mystery and the difficulty out of origami making even the most complex designs doable.
The publisher, Alpha Books, a member of Penguin Group, is giving this book away to one of my readers. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Deadline for this giveaway is Friday, December 3 at 8 am CST. Limited to US residents. Sorry 🙁
If you don’t win, the book can be purchased at your local bookstores or online at Penguin.com. Good Luck!

Making origami is so fun – but it can be really hard with misleading or incomplete instructions. This book would be really great. Thanks for the chance!

I’d love to win this book. Last summer I picked up stacks and stacks of origami paper at a yard sale, but haven’t had time to find a book to learn the craft! I love the step by step instructions in this one. Looks good!
Oh this looks fun!!! It looks a bit complicated too, so would be very rewarding when you got it right!!
