World's Best Origami by Nick Robinson Review & Giveaway -- ENDED



Professional origami artist, Nick Robinson, guides readers through the process of folding paper. Projects are rated from beginner to advanced and include everything from the traditional swan and poppy box to truly amazing pieces such as a geodetic tower and a jet plane! Each diagram is clearly displayed with easy-to-understand folding instructions for a perfect outcome every time.

About the Author: Nick Robinson (London, England, UK) is a professional origami artist and author who has been folding paper for 30 years. A member of the British Origami Society who edits its magazine and maintains its website, Nick has written over 30 books on origami, as well as numerous articles, and done several commercial and charitable origami commissions involving origami and paper art over the last 20 years. Nick has created several hundred original designs and teaches origami in schools, arts centers, and many other venues.

One of my favorite activity as a child was folding orgami papers. I thought it was so much fun to fold different animals and shapes. DD had not been expose to orgami folding yet, so when I was asked to review and host a giveaway of the World's Best Orgami Book by Nick Robinson, I thought it would be fun to try out the book with DD.

The books comes with instructions on how to make more than 100 models. We have tried a few things so far and our favorites are the pig, sunflower, robot's head, star box and ring. When we go out to restaurants, we usually take the book along. While we wait for our food, DH would let DD pick something she likes to make from the book and they would work on it together. It makes waiting for our food so much more fun and it also makes the time go by faster.

To buy your own copy of the book, please visit Amazon.com to make your purchase.

Many thanks to the publisher (Alpha Books) for offering the World's Best Origami book as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
