Bring your favorite animals to life with nothing more than a piece of paper! Animal Origami uses the art of folding to bring you into the wild world of the animal kingdom.
Sometimes, it's easy to see and learn about the animals we love. We can pet our cats and dogs and watch our fish swim in tanks in our very own living rooms. But there's not much chance of seeing tigers, whales, pandas, and penguins up close--and many people would rather not get close to creatures like snakes, spiders, and rats.
Animal Origami offers animal lovers a chance to experience these animals in an entirely new way--by creating them! This fun and informative kit offers simple instructions--and the necessary supplies--for crafting crabs, cows, dinosaurs, and ladybugs. Papers textured to feel just like some of these animals further enhance the experience.
Animals can be intriguing, fun, and fascinating--and with Animal Origami, making them can be all those things too!
Joost Langeveld lives in Holland. Creativity has always been an important part of his life. Until he was about 14, Joost obsessed over Technic Legos, making remote cars, cockpit interiors, a joystick, and even a food mixer to make pancakes. By the time he was 16, he had switched his creative energies to computers and began programming simple computer games and vector-animations to impress his friends and family. Joost's career is still in the computer field, but since he turned 26, origami has become his favorite hobby. Joost is fascinated by both the technical and creative aspects. He has found that it is one thing to fold a model so it has four legs, a tail and a head--but quite another to make it look like a real animal. Joost is especially known for his amazing and realistic flowers and arrangements.
