The ancient art of origami originated in Japan, where it is steeped in traditional values. Japanese Origami for Beginners presents 20 models with strong symbolic meanings. Learn to create the carp, the frog and the crane which symbolize longevity, good luck, and perseverance. Also construct practical items such as paper bags in which to store spices or powdered medications, the masu box for containing small gifts, and uniquely shaped notes with elaborate closures.

The kit also represents the more playful side of origami which has entertained Japanese children for centuries. Enjoy the realistic moves of a stylized paper sumo wrestler or slip on a paper Samurai hat for imaginative play. Origami is an ideal activity for children since paper folding develops dexterity and creativity. This artful craft is based on a few fundamental 3D folding techniques, so the Japanese Origami for Beginners Kit provides a useful starting point for fans of all ages and abilities.

This beginner’s kit includes an illustrated history of origami, a glossary of folding symbols, easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions, and an instructional DVD.
