Overall Impression

A nice collection of Christmas-themed designs (one of which is my own!), BOS booklet #80 packs a lot of value into small space, bringing together models from designers around the world.

From old and new Santa Claus designs, including Paula Versnick's modern classic 2 fold Santa, to several Christmas tree inspired designs, many geometric, single-piece or modular, to adorn your tree with, and a few other holiday or winter-themed creations, there's something here for everyone, in any folding level.

There are 26 Origami Designs in Origami for Christmas - 26 Festive Models:
