This little kit packs a lot of content for origami flowers lovers. It contains a booklet, 180 sheets of flowery colored standard origami paper in two packs, 6 and 3 inch squares, and a DVD.
There are 20 attractive designs here, ranging from simple, modular flowers to the more advanced tulip and rose. Flowers are accompanied by instructions for matching leaves, and the book provides ideas for what papers to use, tips for proper folding techniques, and ideas for using the finished designs. The booklet is very well produced with many photos throughout.
The DVD that comes with the kit contains full video instructions for each and every single project in the book. It's hard to beat Michael LaFosse's teaching videos - they are very well executed, with over-the-shoulder views and good lighting, and he takes care in explaining every move in detail, while giving many tips and tricks, discussing the background of the designs and more.
A great kit for both newcomers to origami or for anyone who'd like to fold some nice flower designs!
