Better Living Through Origami: 20 Creative Paper Projects for a Beautiful Home 

We rated this book:


The DIY-home-improvement movement is in full swing, and there are guides for practically everything nowadays, from repurposing and upcycling to building furniture and even complete home restoration. And Nellianna van den Baard and Kenneth Veenenbos have their own DIY technique for beautifying the home: paper-folding decoration.

Better Living Through Origami is a bit of a misnomer since the works you create in this book have a lot more to do with the cutting, gluing, and manipulation of the paper than traditional origami, so don’t think you can just grab your paper and hop to it. There’s a lot more involved here.

From lampshades, table decorations, and clocks to wall art, mobiles, and bowls, all sorts of home accouterments are possible with their cut-score-fold techniques.

These projects are absolutely beautiful, lovingly photographed, and explained in minute detail to give readers the best possible chance at success. With tool listings, measurements, templates, and more at your disposal, you’ll be adding decorative paper touches to your home in no time.

Better Living Through Origami offers an interesting twist on the DIY formula.
