Make beautiful, hand-made origami envelopes, note cards and other stationery with this excellent origami kit!

One of the casualties of the digital age is the elegance of a handwritten note. World-renowned origami artist Michael LaFosse introduces Origami Stationery Kit which allows origami paper craft folders to create more than just a note, but a work of art that will accent your messages. These folded pieces of easy origami art make an ideal accompaniment to a gift, or to commemorate a holiday or birthday, or just for sending a heartfelt message to a friend or loved one and are a great way to learn origami techniques.

This do-it-yourself kit includes:
  • A full-colored 64-page booklet
  • clear step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow diagrams
  • 15 fun origami projects
  • 80 sheets of durable, authentic origami folding paper
  • 2-sizes of paper and a variety of different colors and patterns
In this origami kit, you will find both traditional and modern examples of the art of the folded note. The scope is from simple origami to intricate origami art; abstract to representational; somber to whimsical: a wide range of paper folding possibilities! Custom printed papers are included to make your notes well dressed for any occasion. Once you learn how to fold any of these origami designs, you can explore many kinds of fine papers for your notes. All of the projects use square shaped paper, which doesn't necessarily need to be origami paper. You will soon have your favorites committed to memory. Then it will be easy to whip up a quick origami note for a "Thank you!," "Sorry I missed you," or "Congratulations!" Even the humblest papers are elevated to elegance by paper folding.

Origami projects include:
  • Flapping Bird Envelope
  • Pillow Note
  • Twist Note
  • Hashi Wrapper Note
  • And much more…
Sending cards and personal notes has never been so much fun with Origami Stationery Kit!
