The papers are beautifully patterned and designed to be folded so each animal has it’s markings placed correctly. I honestly do not know which is my favourite.

This book definitely has to make it into some Christmas stockings.


My efforts….



Choosing which animal to fold was the hardest choice. The printed papers are beautiful, and as you can see they are designed to get the most out of your folding.

These paper folded ‘pets’ are just adorable. I made the cat, the peacock and the ladybird and you can just how beautiful the printed paper is. The paper is quite thick and of good quality.

It is easy to fold, although young children might need help.

Some of the projects use scissors.
