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.

Paper is a fun medium to work with.  I love the fact that it is a very inexpensive craft. Generally, I do paper quilling.  Some of my most popular paper projects on the Sitcom are my Quilled Monogram, Quilled Butterfly in a Jar, and Quilled Starry Night.  Unlike quilling which consists of paper coils, Origami is the art of folding paper to create unique shapes.

So let’s take a look at these three fun books!
