Fun and Relaxing Paper Craft Projects with Easy to Follow, Step-by-Step Instructions to 20 Projects from Simple to Advanced
Are you looking for a calming, relaxing, mindful hobby?
Do you feel better when you fidget with something in your hands?
Are you looking for a simple yet elegant way to create beautiful art?
Paper play, creating origami, might be what youre looking for! Making origami artwork is easy, simple, fun, and amazingly calming. I find that folding the paper so precisely puts me in a state of bliss.
I have always loved working with my hands to create beautiful art. I have made intricate quilts, handmade jewelry, and now I am crafting simple, fun, and relaxing origami projects from nothing more than an average piece of paper.
The wonderful thing about origami art is that you only need paper (any kind that you can get your hands on - literally!) and your hands. Thats it! Theres no special tools or equipment required.
Dont be intimidated by complex dinosaurs and folded stars. Making origami does not have to be hard. My book is broken down into three parts: beginner, intermediate, and advanced projects.
Start slow. Each section demonstrates a different skill which builds off of the techniques that youll practice in doing the previous projects.
In this DIY Origami Art for Beginners book, I will show you everything you need to know to create marvelous origami art pieces.

Well start with examining the history of origami
