A simple sheet of paper is the starting place for fun! With just your fingers, make a few simple folds and you can turn paper into wonderful things that fly, flip, and spin. On this DVD, expert instructor Vicky Mihara Avery provides friendly, clear guidance through step by step lessons. You will discover how easy and fun origami can be! Learn how to decipher Origami diagrams in our special section called The Secret Language of Origami. Then you can click and learn any of of 10 origami models, including the classic origami crane, with bonus segments that show Vickys shortcuts to folding cranes- very helpful if you are folding 1,000 cranes for a project. A bonus CD is included so you can print out diagrams for every model on the DVD. Vicky Mihara Avery is the third-generation in her family to promote and share the experience of Japanese paper crafts. Vicky has been an invited lecturer and instructor at museums, festivals, and Origami conferences across the country, and she has made guest appearances on MARTHA with Martha Stewart, and the Carol Duvall show.
