Origami Animal Boxes Kit: Cute Paper Models with Secret Compartments! (16 Animal Origami Models)



ISBN: 9780804852548 Category: Tags: ,


Chunky, kawaii, blocky and adorable, these 16 clever folded paper animals all conceal a secret-they double as containers to store precious objects or small gift items like money, candy or notes.

Though they’re perfect for those special gifts to friends and loved ones, these cute animal models are almost too sweet to give away! You’ll want to fold up the entire collection and display it proudly on your own desk or shelf.

Each animal model has its own distinct personality:

The pointy-nosed Collie is eager to please, sitting at attention waiting for you to put something in the recess on her back
Two different Fat Hippo models appear to be wading, open-mouthed and hungry for something to eat
A two-toned Chunky Whale has enough room in its belly for little candies, folded money or secret notes
A pair of friendly Box Dragons stand ready to guard whatever you entrust to them, be it a golden treasure or a special keepsake
A chicken family-complete with Hen, Rooster, their cute Little Chick and a Baby Hatchling
And many more!

The full-color book in this kit contains detailed step-by-step folding instructions for each model as well as a clear overview of the origami paper folding basics. There is enough colorful folding paper provided with the kit to allow you to create each of the models.

This kit includes:

A full-color 64-page instruction book
Step-by-step folding instructions
48 high-quality single-sided origami folding sheets
