Bring the folding fun with you wherever you go!

This adorable, pocket size kit features 7 models that are perfect for origami beginners. Don't let its small size fool you—Pocket Size Origami Fun Kit comes complete with everything you need to get started:
  • A full-color instruction booklet with an introduction to folding techniques
  • Simple step-by-step instructions
  • 12 sheets of colorfully-patterned, single-sided folding paper

The origami projects included in this kit are:
  • Blow-up "Balloon" Cube—an impressive cubical form that looks more difficult to fold than it actually is…a puff of air makes it inflate!
  • Jumping Frog—a delightfully playful action model, just press its back and watch it spring
  • Classic Crane—the model you see everywhere: in movies, ads and on television…now you can add it to your repertoire!
  • Butterfly—a charmingly realistic model that will add a touch of elegance to any gift, desktop or wall
  • Masu Box—a classic functional model that can be used to store small items. Fold up two and use the second one as a lid
  • Pinwheel—create a whirling pinwheel that can rotate with the breeze at the end of a dowel or pencil
  • Fur Seal—author Michael G. LaFosse is famous for his lifelike wildlife models, and this handsome paper seal is no exception
