Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Hayakawa (Kirigami Menagerie) has been an origami enthusiast since childhood, and his second book focuses on dogs made out of folded card stock. The introduction explains the basics of cutting and folding; specific directions, as well as illustrations of key steps and a full-color photograph of the finished piece, are included with the information on creating each dog. Rather than starting with a full sheet of origami or office paper, Hayakawa recommends photocopying the reproducible template for the dog of your choice onto card stock, then following the cutting and folding directions for the specific animal . . . the results are surprisingly realistic . . . origami enthusiasts can amaze their friends with their ability to create everything from a mutt to a poodle.” —Library Journal
 
“Making these little paper dogs was so easy with the awesome patterns… So whether you are a dog lover or paper lover or both you will surely get a kick out of making all these little Paper Pups.” —Craft Gossip

It's a little confusing, but the results are surprisingly realistic. VERDICT This collection isn't for beginners, but origami enthusiasts can amaze their friends with their ability to create everything from a mutt to a poodle.
