Editorial Reviews

There are some simple models but also more challenging, intermediate to lower end of advanced models, included in the book as well so it can attract large populations of origami enthusiasts. I very much enjoyed LaFosse & Alexander's Origami Flowers kit so far and look forward to fold more from it." - Yuki's Origami Blog "The boxed kit, published by Tuttle includes 180 folding papers, a full-color instructional booklet and DVD. You get 2 sizes of folding paper, 7 and 15 cm squares in purple, yellow, red, green, orange and pink solids. I love when everything is included! [ ] I found the instructions very clear but if you get stuck just use the instructional DVD, it's very well done, you can go from project to project." - Handmade By Deb blog"Love flowers?

This box set is prime gift material." - The Paper Craft Post blog"There is a nice balance of easy, intermediate and harder models in this book [ ] I have read numerous origami books and folded hundreds of flowers, so it was nice to see some original designs. The quality of the book itself is pretty high, it's a soft cover, but the simply stapled spine makes it easy to open the book without it flipping closed. The pages are modern satin, thin but sturdy. The colors and the photos are high quality and pretty. The size is about A5, which makes it easy tohandle, and cute!" - Paper Kawaii blog"
