5.0 out of 5 stars Get Folding and Cutting, 3 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creating Kirigami (Paperback)
This set contains origami weight paper and 'card', which I would call normal weight paper, as well as a book full of patterns. The designs are striking but aimed at beginners, and often include alternative ways of cutting (such as the pattern without the final fold if your paper is thicker). The book also includes a picture with folding angles marked out so you can use that if you lack a protractor. The designs include the classic snowflakes as well as honeycomb (this and a couple of other designs suggest adding a detail - in this case a bee - cut out separately), an impressive cube design and a five-fold design featuring 25 small stars (this was the first I tried out, and the result was great considering how easy it was!). Overall, the patterns are brilliant and the paper stack is decent, but it's definitely designed as an introduction to the art rather than an extra. Older children will find designs accessible, although some do require internal cutting (most don't), and the folding can be tricky. But a fun book for a rainy afternoon or to discover a new hobby.
