This paper is pretty good. Better than most types available online on . I have purchased other kinds of origami paper (solid colored, patterened, different sizes, etc) and have found that this paper can be used to fold models from tricky modular kind to simple animals and butterflies. Models with intricate folds also come out well with this paper. I have folded John Montroll's T-rex and other dinosaurs using this paper, too. It is good for both beginners as well as intermediate to complex level origami.This origami paper booklet contains an instruction booklet on folding a Zebra, Tiger Mask, Cat head, Cobra, Panther cub and a Crocodile. It contains 49 square sheets (including a sheet of gold foil) of 8 1/4" size. The sheets are double sided in color / print and comes in an array of different animal prints such as Zebra stripes, tiger stripes, giraffe spots, leapard spots, crocodile-skin print as well as a snake-skin print.
Its a pretty decent Origami paper. With animal prints you can have more vivid crafts. The only thing is those prints may prevent u from clearly seeing the crease you made as marks.
I bought 3 packages of this paper from Tuttle via . I wanted the larger 9 inch size to learn more complicated folding. The paper is kind of glossy - so the true form of the model is kind of lost. Plus the ink they used in the papers comes off in my hands. However I could have lived with all of that ....Except for one thing. I believe the manufacturer should not have listed these as origami papers. The paper is thick. So thick it is impossible to fold any model more complicated than folding a letter for an envelope. Because of the thickness, the paper is useless for me. It was only when I received the package that I noticed it said for the beginner folder. That should have been noted in big letters by the manufacturer. All they stressed in the product image was that the patterns were traditional. Meaning the manufacturer already knew it was thick and not usable for the vast majority of origami models.I would have liked to send it back, but unfortunately I used some of the papers.Next time I will look only for those papers that have some kind of product description - an indication whether the manufacturer stands by their product. I used to buy wonderful Japanese and Chinese children's books from Tuttle. Beautifully printed and presented. That is why I trusted buying these papers. Too bad, how far their standards have descended.
Just received Animal print paper. like the designs, paper is same front and back, which I think will work out fine for making the animals. There aresix different designs. Haven't tried them yet,but they look the same as other Tuttle paper I have gotten in the past.Out of all the papers I have bought I like the Tuttle brand best so far.
I gave this to my 9 year old grandson and we have been doing simple origami for about 3 years, but on first attempt by himself had a little trouble. So I tried to help with it and sort of figured it out, but directions weren't as clear as others we've tried.
I gave this to the child of a friend for a gift. He had minimal experience doing oragami, and said this paper was easier to work with and what he made looked better. Also, the selection of papers included were good. (I have a feeling he worked with inferior quality paper before - just based upon his comments.)
Beautiful prints! I collect origami papers, and this is some of the best. And it's not just for animal folds... these are tasteful patterns that lend themselves to many other fabulous uses. I particularly like them for Tomoko Fuse's boxes...
I found this when purchasing - on , of course, and origami book my granddaughter wanted and knew she would love it - yep she does. I performs well and items hold their shape. Great item.
