Overall Impression

The Nippon Origami Association did a great job with this fun collection of Christmas and holiday themed origami models. I enjoy most the different takes on using the red and white sides of the paper to fold the semblance of Santa Claus. For lovers of modular models, there are some nice wreaths and stars to enjoy, and the complete set of alphabet can be useful for every occasion.

There are 47 Origami Designs in Origami de Christmas 2:
