World's Best Oragami - Review and Giveaway!

Just a Quick Before The post Note: I WAS FEATURED!!!! Check it out HERE!

Okay, so you guys pretty much know that I am completely and totally in love with all things paper, right? Right. K. SOooooo....it just makes sense that when I was asked to review this book I HAPPILY accepted!

World's Best Oragami by Nick Robinson is a really fantastic Oragami book.

The book lays out step by step instructions for all kinds of really fun and creative paper folding projects. The steps are SO clear and easy to follow! I love that! They are simple, black and white drawings that allow you to really see what you need to do to complete your project.

This book teaches readers how to:

- Choose the best paper for the project

- Make basic folds and perfect creases

- Follow clear and simple folding instructions for a successful project outcome

- Gain an understanding of origami symbols

It really is SUCH a neat compilation and there are SO many designs from basic to really intricate! That is so cool!

Here is some info about the author:

Nick Robinson (London, England, UK) is a professional origami artist and author who has been folding paper for 30 years. A member of the British Origami Society who edits its magazine and maintains its website, Nick has written over 30 books on origami, as well as numerous articles, and done several commercial and charitable origami commissions involving origami and paper art over the last 20 years. Nick has created several hundred original designs and teaches origami in schools, arts centers, and many other venues.

  14. I hve never tried oragami, however, my grandson is an avid oragami maker. He always checks out books from the library on how to make them. It would be nice for him to have his own book.
