An ace of paper aviation, author Andrew Dewar has spent decades perfecting the art of folding easy paper airplanes that both look great and fly well. In Simple Origami Airplanes Mini Kit, Dewar puts The Razor, The Octopus, The Starbird, The Swordfish, Frankenplane, and The Orbit at your fingertips and—after a few easy folds—they're ready for takeoff! Featuring sturdy wings and fuselages, Dewar's ingenious new designs are so perfectly balanced that a gentle throw results in amazing flights, time after time.
Michael LaFosse is an acknowledged master of the paper-folding arts, but his origami butterflies have won him special acclaim. Hundreds of LaFosse's winged creations are featured in exhibitions around the world, and his iconic butterfly designs are admired by origami enthusiasts everywhere. In this collection, LaFosse presents six exclusive, all-new butterfly designs specifically created with the paper crafts novice in mind. This fun and instructive origami kit will kickstart your creativity with:
• 6 gorgeous butterfly designs, including 'A Butterfly for George Morkiami' and 'A Butterfly for Reiko'
• A 32-page booklet, featuring full-color, step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow origami diagrams
• 40 brilliant, full-color, 5-inch folding papers
• An instructional DVD with more than an hour of video lessons taught by LaFosse himself
Made from a number of small sheets of folded paper, 3D modular origami models represent an exciting evolution in this beloved art form. Although each design requires multiple sheets of paper, the folding required is relatively simple, making it a perfect craft activity to share with children. The real magic lies in the ingenious but simple locks that fit the pieces together to create interchangeable origami puzzles. Because the same elements can be used over and over to create new shapes, they are a fun and effective way to teach kids the wonders of geometry.
My First Origami Kit is the perfect introduction to the joys of origami for kids of all ages. Featuring sheets of stickers along with folding paper, this kit is sure to keep them engaged and happy for hours! Included are whimsical origami penguins, foxes, pigs, airplanes and more—even a cute teddy bear that "talks" when you open and close its arms. All of the papers are colorfully decorated on both sides with a different design for each of the 22 models! There are feathers for the duck, metal plates for the airplane, scales for the cobra, and so on. In most cases, it doesn't even matter which side of the paper kids use—they'll still end up with a great-looking model! Kids will love to add sticker details to their models—eyes, noses, paws, and many other cute features. They can make the finished models look as silly or as serious as they want. Your child will proudly display the finished handiwork—their very first origami!
