Origami Butterflies Book Review and Giveaway


Origami Butterflies Book Review and Giveaway  http://uTry.it

My Kids and I love Origami!  Origami is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture.  We've done many different ones in the past, insects, zoo animals, birds, etc; and loved them all.  The folding process really calms me down as we get so focus in creating these amazing paper arts.  It was wonderful that I had the chance to review the book Origami Butterflies.

There are many different designs of butterflies that you can create by following the step by step pictorial and instructions in the book.  You can also start with their basic method, and then elaborate and create your own designs.  Okay, who am I kidding here?!  Those who knows me well probably know that I’m not too good in reading directions, at all!  I got lost a few time reading it!  Luckily, the book comes with 2 instructional DVDs that show you video tutorials, every step of the way, phew!  By watching the videos, both of my kids were able to make their own butterflies with minimal supervision and assistance.  That was truly amazing and they felt so accomplished when they were able to make their own butterflies!

I got these Origami papers at a local craft store.  You can easily find them these day, as well as getting some online (click here for more information).  I got some different designs and the double-sided ones are wonderful with these butterflies as well.

My Baby Girl added the Origami butterflies to her school project!  They were so beautiful; her teachers and schoolmates were very impressed as well.

The Origami butterfly makes any card a lot more elegant and personal.  For sure you won’t find anything as beautiful as this in the card store.  Plus, I think handmade crafts always add a touch of caring and love, won’t you agree?

  2. Have tried origami when I was a kid - but that was with ordinary paper cut into squares and not proper origami paper as I didn't have them. Brings back memories :)

  20. I had a class on origami, in the Museum of Japan, but it was about 10 years and we had no materials to take home, so I have no idea how to make origami anymore, I can always go to youtube and learn, but the book looks really great :) Plus, doing origami is really relaxing, I prefer to read instructions than to listen to youtube!
