My Review

More Mormon Origami was a fun book. The kids and I gathered around with a stack of square papers and started folding. A couple of the folds took me a few tries to get right and I decided I wouldn't have minded a few extra pictures in there to show the specific fold, specifically the squash fold. We did figure it out though and it got easier the more things we folded. There were only so many of the projects that I would use on a regular basis or more than once, such as the "Armor of God Designs" that you can see below, the dress, the beehive, and the gold plates. My boys especially loved the sword. :) I am curious what projects are included in the first book, Mormon Origami, so I'll be looking that up.

  2. Ha! Six of those were fairly short, so it looks like more than it was, but I'm still happy about it. :)
