This was so much fun! It was a gift for my Marine son who went on a cruise to Alaska and took a class on how to fold towels into animals. He was so clever at that that we got him a book on towel folding and then just happened to find this. It got lots of laughs and was food for thought for many jokes and laughs in the future. How funny it will be to leave a party and have the hostess go in and find a rose on the toilet paper roll!
I absolutely LOVE this book! I've always enjoyed napkin folding, and it's a treat when I visit a hotel that takes time to fold a simple point on their toilet paper rolls. When I saw this book, I was blown away by the gorgeous designs. Even better, they are not difficult to master! I started with the most difficult design, and found the step-by-step pictures so easy to follow. I'm already hoping for a second volume. This book is so much fun. I've been leaving toilegami in restrooms all over now--restaurants, rest stops on the freeway, theatre bathrooms, friends homes. What a treat this is!
A neighbor shared this book with me. I made several of the easy patterns and fell in love with it. We gave it as a Christmas present to several friends and relatives and they were delighted with it. The directions are easy to follow. This would be a great project book for kids for cheap mother's day presents. I loved it!
I have tried almost all of the different folding techniques in this book and love all of them. The directions are so easy to follow.
I am in the accommodation industry and found a couple of folds that are quick, easy and look good. I can do the folds quickly and it is something different for guests. Some of the other folds are quite elaborate and would be nice when you have more time. I am satisfied with the couple I am now using all the time.
I can't believe this is what passes for a $14-plus book. Aside from the glossy cover, the rest of the book looks like it was Xeroxed (in black and white) onto plain computer paper. It's disappointing that there was no indication of this anywhere in the description. Was the publisher cutting costs? It's hideous. It was supposed to be a Christmas present but I'm too embarrassed to give it to anyone. I will be returning the book.
This book is filled with interesting and cute ways to fold your (or a hosts') toilet paper. Many of the designs start with the same basic folds, but blossom into something unique. There are, however, quite a few which are the same basic pocket fold with one small variation (one pleat or two pleats, etc). There is a good variety, I feel, of quick pockets and more involved flowers though. So if you have a few seconds or a few minutes, you can create something.The book is printed in black and white which is fine since you do not need four-color spreads for toilet paper, but it lends a 'lesser quality' feel to the overall product. Also, if you are trying to practice a fold, the book is a standard binding and does not lie flat. So you either need a paper weight or a cook book holder to keep the pages open if you need to see the steps as you go. Some of them are easy enough to look at, close the book, and fold, but some are not.
I purchased this book so I could so learn to make special little TP folds for our upcoming B&B. There are some very pretty flowers to make (way too time consuming) and fortunately there are quite a few folds you can make in little time. My son the origami master just makes them for fun and leaves them as a surprise. FYI it doesn't work so well with triple ply TP. The designs fall apart. Very cute ending to this book. I will eventually use these origami designs in our B&B. Very special and unusual.
