About this item

Art and math intertwine in exciting and complex new ways in "Geometric Origami." Origami is a centuries old art form, where folding a piece of paper creates a new and wondrous object. But when the art of origami and the science of math combine, they connect together in such a way that something entirely different and magical is created.
In "Geometric Origami, " the initial folds are easily created, but once the basic building blocks are ready, it is the intricate combining of these pieces into a new geometric sculpture that truly inspires. Ideal for demonstrating the sophistication and wonder of geometry, they can also be great conversation starting decorations for the home or office.
Projects include:
Compass Star
Aster
Lightning Bolt Octahedron
Butterfly Ball
Picture Cube
Modular Crane
Sonobe Module and Cube
Magic Rose Cube

Greatest Origami product you could buy

Even though Christmas is now (thankfully) over, it doesn't change the fact that I search high and low for gifts. This particular product I got for my friend's son, who just got interested in Origami. I looked on several websites, trying to find something that was halfway worthwhile while keeping on my budget (I only had about 10$ per friend's kids, and there were four to buy for). I came across this and thought it looked really neat, but was a little skeptical because of the price (right at my 10$ mark). I was not disappointed and neither was my friend's son. It comes with a book, a very helpful step-by-step dvd, and a LOT of starting paper. And not just boring squares, they have all kinds of neat colors and patterns that make the finished Origami look even better. I would definitely recommend this for anyone that is dabbling in the craft, it is more than worth the price, for a range of ages.

I decided having something to do with my hands would help cut down my smoking, and was hoping this would be as fun for an adult as it would be for a kid, and was not disappointed. The DVD really helps show the folds in a way the book is a little confusing on, but I am two figures in and I really love it! The best part is the selection of two sizes of brightly colored and patterned paper. This started kit has much more than others are advertising, making it perfect even if you don't want to start with the geometric shapes demonstrated.
