In a fun twist on an ancient art, the authors present a selection of paper-folding projects that use old envelopes, potato chip bags, and even magazine subscription cards instead of the usual origami paper. Each project is presented with full-color photos followed by a clear chart using standardized origami symbols that show exactly how to fold the piece. An accompanying DVD provides even more instruction, especially helpful for readers who learn best by watching. Projects include a candy wrapper butterfly, a crown towers and jumping frog game, photo cubes, snack bag wallets, and elegant boxes and envelopes. The "curler unit ball" project is a standout; it is a truly gorgeous, complex creation. While all of the projects are ingenious, some are more attractive than others; trash is trash, after all. But the low price point, accompanying DVD, and green tilt should help it sell well with crafters. Photos. (Oct.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
