I love to be able to recommend the best for my readers, and Benjamin's unique talent of merging two Japanese art forms- origami and bonsai, creates an exciting new form of paper art! This unique book "kit" will teach you the art step-by-step with simple illustrated tutorials, and even a DVD to help you along! You can create beautiful delicate paper flowers and leaves and essentially create your own unique paper bonsai!" - Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom blog"I've purchased a few origami flower kits in the past and the paper with this kit is by far the best suited for creating lifelike flowers." - About.com Origami " Origami Bonsai is lovely, as are all of Ben's books, instructional DVDs, and paper creations." -Ann Martin, author of All Things Paper "I can't wait to make more of these origami bonsai sculptures as center pieces for our Thanksgiving dinner and for holiday decorations. Perhaps I could also give them out as holiday gifts. I think this kit itself makes a great holiday gift to people who loves craft projects as well!" - Yuki's Origami Blog "With the holidays approaching, folding an origami bonsai would be more thoughtful than spending hours at the mall or online. Highly recommend!" -Cindy Ng, Origami Blog "This origami kit from Tuttle Publishing contains several tools to teach you how to make unbelievable floral designs and sculptures." -Dana Byerwalter, All Free Paper Crafts blog"Always wanted to make a bonsai, finally could make [it] when I happen to lay my hands on wonderful Origami Bonsai Kit by Tuttle Publishing, which contains detailed simple instructions [and] clear photo diagrams, a DVD with awesome video instructions for each model by the creator himself and also the paper required. The kit is just awesome." - Origami Love blog" the greatest savings of time and energy for the beginning origamist is provided by the vari-colored folding papers contained in the kit, along with Mr. Coleman's effective instructions in folding. His 'glow-fold' technique simplifies the learning process for the beginner, reducing trial and error." - Examiner.com "
