Practical Origami book

While we're on the topic of origami, the publisher of Practical Origami: Folding Your Way to Everyday Accessories sent over a review copy the other day. Take a peek at what you can make! The book is full of instructions for folding boxes, bags, envelopes, containers, coasters, flowers and more. The illustrations and written directions are clear and simple to follow, and there's a guide to the symbols and types of folds at the beginning of the book. Find it here at Amazon.

I fold little birds and what-have-yous and Boyfriend says, "What are we going to do with those?" So glad somebody's come up with this book!

Also, it's cute that your mom commented:)
