Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In a fun twist on an ancient art, the authors present a selection of paper-folding projects that use old envelopes, potato chip bags, and even magazine subscription cards instead of the usual origami paper. Each project is presented with full-color photos followed by a clear chart using standardized origami symbols that show exactly how to fold the piece. An accompanying DVD provides even more instruction, especially helpful for readers who learn best by watching. Projects include a candy wrapper butterfly, a crown towers and jumping frog game, photo cubes, snack bag wallets, and elegant boxes and envelopes. The "curler unit ball" project is a standout; it is a truly gorgeous, complex creation. While all of the projects are ingenious, some are more attractive than others; trash is trash, after all. But the low price point, accompanying DVD, and green tilt should help it sell well with crafters. Photos. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
"A fun, instructive guide showing how to turn trash into origami."—Architectural Record

"In this colorfully illustrated book using heavyweight glossy sheets, 25 different origami productions are clearly explained, diagrammed, and photographed. While the patterns presented are cleverly attractive, the novelty exploited in this volume is the use of recyclable raw materials in place of the traditional origami paper."—Sacramento Book Review

    I enjoyed two items from this book so much that they became my specialty! Thank you Rona Gurkewits in USA for your wonderful Custom-Bound Books! I made so many of them to give to my friends as Thank-you cards. Traditional Photo Cube is another that I enjoy making very much. Oh, and also the little butterflies. I made them to use as a decoration for my origami book. I haven't made many others, but I still give the full rating for the few ideas that enriched my life very much.
