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'

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.
