Amazing Origami Boxes Review & GIVEAWAY

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this just released title from Dover Publications. It's Amazing Origami Boxes by bestselling author Tomoko Fuse. She's my favorite origami author. Her 128 page softcover presents 20 useful and decorative origami models. Learn how to make an assortment of striking boxes, bowls and baskets perfect for gifting. There are a few traditional favorites and some exciting new models! The folding skill level ranges from easy to difficult. Clear, step-by-step diagram instruction and text accompany each project. Most require regular size origami paper 6'' (15 cm) square. Photographer Dario Canova showcases the completed models in full color from a variety of angles. This book is an excellent resource. I will return to it over and over again because of all of the interesting projects. Get your copy below.
