This is a stunning book. It comes complete with 30 sheets of origami paper, which have stunning colours, both plain and patterned. All you need is time and your folding fingers.
In four sections, that cover, Classic Designs, Modern Boxes, Two Piece Boxes and Modular Boxes. All are very beautiful and are perfect for small gifts or sweets. I can imagine sugared almonds at Christmas, all boxed up and used as place settings.
