Trash Origami Review & Giveaway

Origami Dish
My new favorite origami fold is called Ali's Folded Dish. Attractive and practical, the design is solid and easily folded. An 8 1/4" square folds into a 5 x 5 x 2" deep dish that stacks neatly. Brings new meaning to the term "paper plates". The design is from Trash Origami 25 Exciting Paper Models You Can Make with Recycled Trash by Michael G. LaFosse & Richard L. Alexander. Reuse pretty or interesting bits of paper from your recycling bin. I used origami paper. A professional DVD is included. Get your copy below!

  1. I would like Basic Black: 26 Edgy Essentials for the Modern Wardrobe by Sato Watanabe. I do hope the instructions are good; it can be difficult to see sewing on black fabric.

  2. I keep looking at their Everyday Bento book and would love to get a copy. Also I'm a huge recycler and want to repurpose most everything instead of adding to our trash problems. ~Deb

  3. I do love looking at origami pieces but need some basics and confidence building so the Ultimate Origami for Beginners Kit from Tuttle Publishing would be ideal for me. ~Deb
