Make traditional, simple and fun papercraft models with this easy origami book and paper kit. The ancient art of origami originated in Japan, where it is steeped in traditional values. The 20 models presented in this kit include many with strong symbolic meanings, such as the carp, the frog and the crane, which symbolize longevity, good luck and perseverance. Also included in this kit are paper models which have practical uses, such as a bag in which to store spices or powdered medications, the masu box for containing small gifts, and uniquely shaped notes with elaborate closures. The more playful side of origami is represented as well: the stylized sumo wrestler with realistic moves has entertained Japanese children for centuries, and the paper Samurai hat is a favorite of kids.

Crease patterns, the lines left on a piece of paper when you unfold an origami model also serve as a guide to how each model is made. A variety of engaging folds rich in symbolic meaning." -Handmade by Deb blog
