Origami Made Simple: 40 Easy Models with Step-By-Step Instructions

5 out of 5 stars

This book has simple instructions for easy origami patterns, and begins with the simplest of them all, a little paper house. Gradually the book moves from simple designs to more complex designs that require more folds. Everything is explained with detailed instructions and diagrams that clearly show each fold.

I love the cute designs! There are cats and birds and fish and butterflies, a teapot, a basket, a man fishing, a praying nun, and even a sphinx and a snail. The instructions for some of these are so simple that a child could do them, and yet they are still interesting for adults.
My favorite design is the origami for a little paper piano! I HAD to try it out immediately, because I am a pianist, and it turned out great! It was so easy to do, and I drew a little piano keyboard onto the paper with a pen. So fun!

You don’t have to have “real” origami paper to make these. You can just cut some printer paper to be square and start folding! The diagrams are so easy to follow!
