Origami Bonsai Kit
Create Beautiful Botanical Sculptures [Boxed Kit with 48 Folding Papers, Full-Color Book & DVD]
By merging two iconic Japanese art forms-origami and bonsai-Benjamin Coleman sparked an exciting evolution in paper folding, and made a name for himself in both the origami world and on the burgeoning Etsy landscape. Now, Origami Bonsai Kit makes it possible for paper folders at every level to create Coleman's unique botanical sculptures at home by folding delicate paper flowers and leaves and attaching them to natural branches.
Coleman uses the innovative "glow-fold" method and utilizes color to identify exactly which part of the model to fold in any given step making it easy for beginning folders to create exquisite bonsai paper art. In addition to sharing his revolutionary paper crafting techniques, Coleman also shows you how to select natural twigs, branches, and stones-and how to assemble them into a lifelike finished sculpture.
Origami Bonsai Kit includes: Full-color step-by-step instructions for 8 different mix-and-match flower forms and 4 different types of leaves; enough custom-designed folding paper (full-color on both sides) to create more than 400 flowers and leaves, and a DVD featuring more than three hours of instructional footage by Coleman himself.
