Japanese paper folding, or origami, is an ancient art form that continues to fascinate craft fans and anyone else with a creative streak. The projects in this book are based on flowers held by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, London. Some of them will be familiar to many people, but others are less well-known and will serve as an excellent introduction to those who want to experiment with paper-folding and creating beautiful and original flower models.
Each project has clear, step-by-step instructions to accompany the illustrations, and the book also includes information on basic folding techniques and materials.
Perfect for anyone with an interest in paper-folding, from the beginner to the origami enthusiast.
