Origami Book Trio Giveaway!

I love working with paper. So, I was pleasantly surprised with I was asked to do a review and giveaway on three different Origami books!  So, we are going to take a look at Origami Animal Sculpture, Origami Flowers, and Travel Origami.  Each takes the subject of paper folding, or Origami and looks at it in a new and different way.
