Trash Origami: 25 Paper Folding Projects Reusing Everyday Materials: Includes Origami Book & Downloadable Video Instructions by Michael G. LaFosse, Richard L. Alexander

Make fun and functional origami out of your spare paper with this easy origami book.

Don't dump your wastepaper into the garbage—it's time to fold! World renowned origami artists and award-winning authors Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander show you the way with Trash Origami. This origami book presents unique and fun projects from their Origamido Studio and from some of the world's best paper designers, including Nick Robinson, Herman Van Goubergen, and Rona Gurkewitz.

The origami models are presented for the reader who may have little or no previous folding experience, making it a great origami-for-kids book and an effective way to learn origami. However, experienced paper folders will also be intrigued by the novel nature of the folds and the unusual materials involved. The origami designs are made from old calendar pages, candy wrappers, envelopes, newspaper, postcards, paper grocery bags and more. The downloadable video tutorial will make the folding process clearer and aid folders of all skill levels. Also provided is a guide to everyday materials that have the most folding potential leaving readers inspired to design and display their very own "trash" origami.

  • Full-color, 95 page instructional book
  • 25 unique origami projects
  • Projects from top paper folding designers
  • Clear, step-by-step directions

These are two of the most talented Origami specialists in the world. But they understand how to get their complex ideas down for the layperson to understand!

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.

I also gave my grandson this book, and he was again happy to see a DVD with it.
