Overview

Make quick and easy origami projects with this origami book with tear-out folding paper.

Origami for Busy People is the first origami book for people who love to fold paper for fun and relaxation but have trouble finding the time in their busy day for it. The bright, high-quality folding paper in the book makes it like an origami kit—You won't have to buy new folding paper anytime soon!

This origami book contains:

  • 96 page, full-color booklet
  • Introduction and guide to paper folding techniques
  • Step-by-step instructions and diagrams
  • 27 fun-to-do projects
  • 48, two-sided perforated folding sheets
  • Dozens of different colors and patterns
These fun folds are a great way to learn origami and can be used to decorate your cubicle, to create something to give to friends and family at the end of the day, to show to colleagues at the water cooler or just to use as conversational ice-breakers or as a form of mental relaxation. The ease of the folds makes it a great origami-for-kids book but the projects are interesting enough for adult beginner origami enthusiasts.

Origami projects include
  • Jack-O'Lantern
  • Seahorse
  • Noisemaker
  • Topsy-Turvy
  • And many more…
