Bringing papercraft to the Sex & The City generation, Girligami by Cindy Ng offers a fresh, fun and fashionable spin on origami.
Filled with dozens of adorable projects, this is a fabulous book for any girly girl - whether she's crafty or not. Fold yourself a set of cute animals, delicious Cool Cupcakes and a Tasty Chocolate-Covered Strawberry, a retro-cool Ancient Phone, and of course, a pair of Foxy Pumps. Each project is accompanied by easy to follow step-by-step instructions and the book includes all the paper required to make each project - although I'd recommend scanning the paper in to your computer first and then printing it out, so that you can make as many of each item as you like.
These projects would be great embellishments for your greetings cards. There's even a section of the book which offers suggestions for turning your origami into accessories and jewelry, such as a pair of Vogue-It Earrings. Do more with paper and learn some awesome girligami!
