Paper Home Review

Paper Home: Beautifully Unique Origami Projects by Esther Thorpe is a 144 page hardcover released Feb. 7, 2017 from – Publisher: Pavilion Books. Whether every day or special occasion these paper folding projects will help you add a unique personal touch to your home. For example, my new favorite origami fold, the Triangular Basket – photo below. It may look difficult to make but it's actually very easy. A dab or two of glue and it's quite sturdy. With Easter approaching I'm going to use my basket as an Easter table favor. One for each place setting. By adding some crinkle paper and Easter eggs it's an eye-catching geometric nest. It's just 1 of the 15 home decor paper folding projects in Ester's book. I've folded several of the designs and found the instructions, both photo and text, very clear. The projects vary in degree of difficulty. Paper, scissors, glue and other easy to find craft supplies required. A sheet of paper is full of possibilities. By applying origami techniques Ester shows how you can dress up any party or room. Get your copy below!

  2. I've always wanted to learn how to do origami. I had a book when I was younger. I've always found it hard to do.
