Origami 365 Review - Origami Heart Bracelets Giveaway


Race Point Publishing presents Origami 365 by Taro Yaguchi, includes a whopping 365 sheets of glossy origami paper in three sizes, and a variety of attractive colors and patterns. The author is Founder of Taro's Origami Studio in Brooklyn, New York, voted Best of New York in 2012. Taro created the Kyu system of teaching origami. He emphasizes mastering the principles of origami, fundamental folds and bases are classified by level of difficulty into belts. Students advance through six belts ranging from Yellow Belt (6th Kyu) to Red Belt (1st Kyu). Use those fundamentals on 12 select origami models. This is the Heart Pendant, it uses the Book, Cabinet, Kite and Squash Folds. A single piece of square paper is required to make the sturdy design, insert a chain or thread through to create a pendant. I made a pretty bracelet with a 2 1/4 inch square of handmade Japanese paper and a blue cotton thread. Get your copy and enter my giveaway below!
