Editorial Reviews

A fun, instructive guide showing how to turn trash into origami." - Architectural Record "In this colorfully illustrated book using heavyweight glossy sheets, 25 different origami productions are clearly explained, diagrammed, and photographed. While the patterns presented are cleverly attractive, the novelty exploited in this volume is the use of recyclable raw materials in place of the traditional origami paper."- Sacramento Book Review "My new favorite origami fold is called Ali's Folded Dish. Attractive and practical, the design is solid and easily folded. An 8 1/4" square folds into a 5 x 5 x 2" deep dish that stacks neatly. Brings new meaning to the term "paper plates". The design is from Trash Origami 25 Exciting Paper Models You Can Make with Recycled Trash by Michael G. LaFosse & Richard L. Alexander. Reuse pretty or interesting bits of paper from your recycling bin. I used origami paper. A professional DVD Video is included." - Handmade By Deb blog"This book helps answer the question - What can I fold from this interesting scrap of paper?. Origami enthusiast tend to save interesting paper, waiting for the right design to come along. In Trash Origami LaFosse and Alexander collected designs that prominently feature the paper they're folded from. [... ] The DVD that comes with the kit contains full video instructions for each and every single project in the book. It's hard to beat Michael LaFosse's teaching videos - they are very well executed, with over-the-shoulder views and good lighting, and he takes care in explaining every move in detail, while giving many tips and tricks, discussing the background of the designs and more." - Gilad's Origami Page blog"Save the Earth while maintaining your creativity.
