Today, I have a great origami pattern for a placecard from the book The Origami Artist's Bible that you can use for all the upcoming holidays to decorate your table so that your guests know where to sit. I bet it would be great to also use to label food items so your guests know just what scrumptious goodies await them.
Click on these pages from The Origami Artist's Bible to enlarge and read the full step-by-step tutorial on how to fold an origami placecard.
More about the Chartwell book:
by Ashley WoodThis hardcover book with internal wire-o binding is 6.5in x 8in, a perfect size for readers to keep handy and reference often. The stylish design of this book, along with the interior photographs, illustrations and diagrams, make the learning process simple and fun for origami beginners and provides useful tips for more advanced folders.
Origami transcends gender, culture, and language. It demands no prior learning and no complex equipment; it can be done at any age, by anyone; models can be large or small, useful or ornamental. You can fold a bus ticket or a sheet of gold leaf, but the sole requirement of becoming an expert in origami is that you enjoy it!
The Origami Artist's Bible starts with a simple set of origami folds, illustrated with clear step-by-step diagrams, and three essential origami "bases" that are starting points for project models in the rest of the book. The models are arranged according to theme; some are complex, requiring patience and practice, and some are suitable for total beginners.
