More 3D Origami
I first learned about 3D origami from a friend. She showed me a doll made completely from paper and told me it was a handmade gift from her Filipino mother’s helper.
I had never seen anything like it, so of course, as soon as I got home I went straight to the internet.
It turns out this form of origami is common in many poorer countries. It’s an inexpensive way to utilize scraps of paper that would otherwise be discarded. It’s the ultimate recycling project.
More 3D Origami is a small, well illustrated book that details 21 projects that can be made from paper triangles. It includes instructions for animals, dolls and decorative containers. It also includes short sections on definitions, preparing the basic pieces and attaching them together.
There are several 3D Origami books on the market. Why did I choose this one?
I like the selection of projects in this book. I can’t see myself making owls or cranes, but I can see myself creating baskets, vases and bowls.
In addition, the book is very well illustrated. Each project has a color photo plus lots of diagrams and black & white photos showing assembly. There are also diagrams illustrating the order of the triangles.
Sadly, More 3D Origami is currently out of print and the only books available on Amazon go for $75.00 and up.
