With origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, you can turn ordinary pieces of paper into animals, decorations, toys and more - and this book teaches you how, as well as other ways of using paper creatively. There are five chapters, all packed full of ideas. Begin with Amazing Animals, from Freddie the hopping frog and a herd of cows to penguins and whales. In Flying Fun, find out how to make the classic paper airplane, plus other things that will fly, such as a helicopter and a heart kite. Top Toys shows you how to transform paper into a hat, a balloon and even a fortune teller. Make your bedroom beautiful with Dazzling Decorations - what about Christmas crackers for the holidays or some pretty paper flowers? Finally, use your newfound paper skills to create some Gorgeous Gifts and Cards - including a lovely Easter basket and a cute Russian doll card. All the projects have instructions and adorable artworks that are easy to follow, and each one has a grade, so that you can start with the easiest projects and, as your origami skills improve, move onto the more challenging ones.
