Williard (Lewisville, NC USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Origami Card Craft: 30 Clever Cards and Envelopes to Fold (Paperback) I chose this book to make interesting card and scrapbook pages as well as a new craft to “play” with. The first use was for reserved seating notifications for our daughter’s wedding. Guests were quite taken with the folded letter. Then I took the book and some paper to the nursing facility where my mom lives. She used to sew and quilt a lot so I thought I would try some techniques with her. Even though she has dementia, we accomplished two projects and will do more. She is very proud of her work and shows it to everyone. She says it helps keep her hands and mind active. So we are now planning new ways to use our projects when she and I make them – gifts of note cards, fun designs, etc. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 15 of 15 people found the following review helpful Love it!, November 7, 2010 By A. Burke (Los Angeles, California) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Origami Card Craft: 30 Clever Cards and Envelopes to Fold (Paperback) I’ve only tried a few of these so far, and they’ve been successful, but the few I’ve learned are so useful, that they are worth the price of the book alone. And I have found inspiration for other projects as well looking through the pages. I stopped doing origami for a long time, because after all the figuring and folding, I rarely had any use for the objects created – not to mention the ROOM to keep and display them. But these things are useful as well as elegant. I may never buy another greeting card (which is a good thing, because greeting cards have become quite boring of late.) I can now combine collage, calligraphy, & illustration with paper folding. I know I am going to love it.

Henry (Denver, CO USA) – This review is from: Origami Card Craft: 30 Clever Cards and Envelopes to Fold (Paperback) The book is nicely produced and packaged, and the photos and directions are pretty good. However, I had problems folding a few of these things–I followed the instructions to the letter but wasn’t satisfied with the results. I emailed the author asking for help with the problems I encountered but never had a reply. I agree with another reviewer that though the book is probably fun for newbies, many of the projects are identical to those in other books. But, there are some fun projects.
