The book begins with general tips on getting started and obtaining the best results. Easy-to-follow directions are included for all the basic folds. The projects are then organized by level of capability.

Easy Origami is the perfect introduction to this popular craft. Beginners of all ages will have fun folding and unfolding as they discover a magical world of paper creations.

Review Quotes

Good for beginners... all of them are fun to make.--Lynn Kalber "Palm Beach Post" (1/19/2006 12:00:00 AM)

The book has excellent production values with sharp clear photographs of the projects and good step-by-step diagrams. It will be a very popular item in school and public libraries.--Lorraine Douglas, former Children's Librarian, Winnipeg Public Library, Winnipeg MB "Canadian Materials, Vol. 12, No. 19"

This book has an eclectic mix of paper arts which include kirigami, origami and modular origami. The easy models are quite easy and will appeal to young children; however, the harder models will be beyond their reach. It is a good beginners book for adults or older children.-- "Origami Resource Center" (1/1/2010 12:00:00 AM)

Using folds and an occasional scissor snip, clear step-by-step directions and two-color guides printed on a crisp white background demonstrate 24 paper creations.... Models are rated for difficulty while color photos of the finished products offer additional encouragement.-- "School Library Journal" (10/1/2006 12:00:00 AM)

24 models, some of which are original and actually live up to the title's promise... Novices in particular may be drawn to this collection by its unusually clean design and bright, inviting colors.--John Peters "School Library Journal" (2/1/2006 12:00:00 AM)

Not easy

4 out of 5 stars
Angie - 10 years ago
I bought this for my 9 year old thinking it would be easy for him to do, but it's not easy for his age. I wouldn't even consider it easy for an adult but it's doable.
