There were no ratings for this book, but the other ones I looked at had poor ratings so I chanced this
On first viewing it looked great - lots of interesting things to make
However on reading the projects some of them are not origami and some are not boxes. Wrapping paper stuck to a cereal box is not origami, and tissue paper wrapped around a pot plant is neither a box nor origami. Whilst the playing cards folded into a box looks nice this isn't origami either - it's paper slotting at best.
Then there's the boxes which are origami, of which I'd say there are about 15. Some of them don't use paper squares, but strips or even A4 paper. So the origami paper I have is no use
Difficult instructions, even for me as a novice with a bit of practice the 'simple' box made no sense. She keeps using the same impossible to understand instruction on every box. 'Twist' is not an instruction I've seen before using paper
They're also far too small when made up to hold anything when using average origami squares. Looking at the instructions her paper squares are much bigger than mine. Aren't origami squares usually uniform?
Because she's made up a lot of these boxes, it's impossible to find a video tutorial even, so it's even more annoying
So if she'd called this 'paper boxes' I'd have been less annoyed. As it is I'm fuming.
