This origami kit combines the relaxation of an adult colouring book and the art of origami in one!

Everything is provided—patterned origami paper, colored pens and detailed step-by-step instructions. Engaging projects in this origami kit include:
  • Hand-colored Picture Frame for a loved one
  • Colourful Masu Box to hold a treasured memento or gift
  • Traditional Japanese Crane from paper patterns that you hand-coloured yourself
The act of colouring takes on a whole new meaning when your finished origami artwork can be folded up and displayed. The art of folding colored paper is an ancient one—used by the Japanese for many centuries for relaxation and meditation. Hand-coloring and folding origami paper requires concentration and yields spectacular results—as a three-dimensional form takes shape before your very eyes, as if by magic!

You will be proud to display these beautiful models, and they make fantastic gifts and conversation pieces for your friends.
