I've been to Japan many times on business and bought lots of handmade paper, lots of origami papers also. Never enough time, but I do love it. Please enter me in the drawing, thanks much!!

user-3385447 writes: Would love this book. Years ago when I worked in an elementary school library I would make origami items using the instructional books and taught the students how. We hung them from the ceiling to decorate the library, then on Spring Fling day we would sell them to earn money to buy more books and colourful paper and start over again. Unfortunately I cannot remember how to fold without looking at a book. Sophia
