Origami Flowers Kit Review & Giveaway


This is the pretty Petallunia Moon Flower! It's just one of 20 projects in LaFosse & Alexander's Origami Flowers, Lifelike Paper Flowers to Brighten Up Your Life. The boxed kit, published by Tuttle includes 180 folding papers, a full-color instructional booklet and DVD. You get 2 sizes of folding paper, 7 and 15 cm squares in purple, yellow, red, green, orange and pink solids. To make this flower I used five 6 cm squares of handmade Japanese paper, 1 for each petal. Best of all the design is modifiable, add or remove petals to transform the look of the flower! It wasn't difficult to make, I found the instructions very clear but if you get stuck just use the instructional DVD, it's very well done, you can go from project to project. Can you imagine how spectacular a bouquet of paper flowers would look? Get your kit below!

  39. Oh there are so many books at Tuttle Publishing that I am interested in ~ honestly ~ I don't know where to begin!

    I course I love the prize and any other book about creative uses of paper (I love making collages and doing decoupage!)

    We also love to cook! We are very much into pretty much ALL Asian cuisines: three cookbooks that immediately caught my eye are:

    Asian Cooking Made Easy
    An Edible Mosaic
    Middles Eastern Home Cooking
    (to name just a few!)

    Zen Chinese also caught my eye and I've been wanting to try my hand at jewelry making (especially with beads) so Creative Beaded Jewelry also belongs on my wish list! Thanks for the giveaway and the intro to Tuttle Publishing ~ my kind of books!
