origamiI am always looking for fun crafty things to do and add to my scrapbook, so when I saw a book all about how to make Origami Stars, I needed to check it out!  The book is broken down by the number of points the star has ranging from 3-8+.  They are also ranked by how difficult they are to make, using, of course, a star ranking system where 1 star is simple, 2 stars is intermediate and 3 stars is complex.  There are pictures of all 37 of the stars listed in the book in the index so you can easily pick out which one you would like to make and then flip to the pages with the instructions!  There is also a guide to the origami symbols which was great because while I’ve done origami in the past, I didn’t really remember much about how to do it. I needed the refresher!  There are also some how to’s on folding and what the basic folds are.  This is definitely a book I’ll be referencing again and who knows, maybe you’ll see a star or two in my future scrapbook posts!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review,  I was not otherwise compensated.
