Origami Kit Giveaway


Ultimate Origami for Beginners

By Michael G. La Fosse & Richard L. Alexander

Tuttle Publishing 2014

Boxed kit includes: 64-page booklet, instructional DVD, 62 folding papers in three sizes: small squares, larger squares; mock dollars for money-folding



Welcome to my first-ever blog giveaway. It’s  a winner – a boxed origami kit by the renowned origami duo, La Fosse and Alexander. Suitable for beginners or older children, this paper-folding kit is a box of delights.


The beauty of this kit is that you can choose how to learn. Are you a book person? Follow the trad step-by-step origami folding diagrams in the booklet. Do you prefer video instruction? Then watch the clear, no-nonsense video how-tos demonstated by Michael G. La Fosse on the DVD. Or, use a combination of both to support your learning.


The kit features 19 origami models in five different categories – a really fun mix – Classic Favourites, Flowers, Animals, Airplanes, and Dollar Folds. The projects include modular designs – like the fascinating Crane’s Egg – a three-section box and adorable animal models – such as the Dim Sum Bunny (cute as a dumpling!), a baby dinosaur, and Kanji the Dog (perky ears and tail).  There’s a money-fold Butterfly and a Yacht. No worries about the folding proportions of the bank notes because the kit provides fake US dollar bills for your convenience.


You will really enjoy learning to fold an awesome variety of origami makes.
