Editorial Reviews

Cindy Ng's elegant designs are a modern twist on a beloved ancient art form. Cindy's contributions respect origami's roots while enlivening the art form with an innovative and colorful approach." - BestAmericanArts.com blog"The author's lightbulb idea is to transform travel-related paper stuff-brochures, picture postcards, sweet wrappers, maps, paper bags, bank notes, even drinking straws-into almost-instant origami mementoes. Tah dah-you are simultaneously recycling, occupying/entertaining the kids, and producing fun origami souvenirs. Magic! [ ] The projects are suitable for origami beginners. This title would make a fabulous bon voyage gift. Captivating keepsakes are just a few folds away. Guaranteed tobring a smile." - The Papercraft Post blog"Have lots of fun paper souvenirs leftover from that last trip? This fun book gives you some creative ideas to display them! Use those postcards, street maps, tickets and souvenirs and convert them into pretty art that brings back memories. Travel Origami: 24 Fun and Functional Travel Keepsakes gives you 24 easy-to-fold origami projects along with step-by-step instructions showing you how to fold your paper collections into special items you can wear, carry, hang on your wall, or give away as a special keepsake. My husband always collects maps and brochures of the areas that we travel to. I'm thinking some of these great ideas could be turned into something fun like a refrigerator magnet!" - Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom blog "[ ] liked the concept of making keepsakes out of collected ephemera from my vacations." - Zakka Life blog "I love functional origami, and paper crafting with unexpected materials. So this book is a perfect fit for my interests, and hopefully for yours as well. [ ] The models themselves are mostly functional. Lots of wearable projects like rings, a bracelet and a necklace. The suggested papers are just that- suggestions. You can cut any paper to fit the dimensions which are clearly stated. [ ] There are picture frames, little dishes to hold small things in, envelopes, gift wrap bag and decorative items like the modular postcard star on the cover. [ ] I love the idea of saving your memorabilia in a way that it can be used and displayed daily, and this book is a way to do that." - Don't Eat the Paste blog"[ ] this would be a great book for someone who has never done origami but curious, and wants an out-of-ordinary activity while traveling. The concept of folding paper souvenirs into fun and functional keepsakes is fantastic." - Yuki's Origami Blog "Cindy Ng author of the popular origami kit Girligami continues her modern twist on origami in Travel Origami, 24 Fun and Functional Travel Keepsakes, published by Tuttle. Non-traditional sizes and types of paper are folded into sentimental origami souvenirs. Turn travel ephemera like flyers, brochures, leaflets, pamphlets, maps, programmes, packaging, advertising, posters, newspapers, tickets and labels into origami tokens of remembrance." -Handmade by Deb blog"I like the premise of this book - using paper from your various travels to make keepsakes. The designs and ideas are fun, and give purpose to materials you might not consider for origami, such as candy wrappers, paper bags, comic strips and more. Also included are a few paper currency folding ideas. All with nice write-ups, finishing and display ideas. The designs range from the decorative to the functional. The book itself is beautifully produced, printed in full color on glossy paper, with nice photographs throughout." -Gilad's Origami Page "
