Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hayakawa (Kirigami Menagerie) has been an origami enthusiast since childhood, and his second book focuses on dogs made out of folded card stock. The introduction explains the basics of cutting and folding; specific directions, as well as illustrations of key steps and a full-color photograph of the finished piece, are included with the information on creating each dog. Rather than starting with a full sheet of origami or office paper, Hayakawa recommends photocopying the reproducible template for the dog of your choice onto card stock, then following the cutting and folding directions for the specific animal . . . the results are surprisingly realistic . . . origami enthusiasts can amaze their friends with their ability to create everything from a mutt to a poodle.” —Library Journal
 
“Making these little paper dogs was so easy with the awesome patterns… So whether you are a dog lover or paper lover or both you will surely get a kick out of making all these little Paper Pups.” —Craft Gossip

Format: Paperback
I was able to see Mr. Hayakawa make some of his designed pups, first hand- at todays Asian festival in Columbus, Ohio. He made numerous breeds of pups for kids. And he took the time to show them how to make some of his projects. He was really nice to everyone. It was interesting to watch how he could fold, cut and shape these paper pups with ease and skill. Off to the side, he had a copy of all 35 pups, fully constructed and painted. They looked impressive and gave those of us in the audience a sense of what could be done with these creations.

The book itself, is very well illustrated. Each breed of dog has its own section, showing you the step by step process. The instructions are very clear and concise. Theres even a symbol key in the front of the book to show you what each one means. There are five tools that you need, which are also shown in a color photo. Many of these items you will have at your home already. After seeing the finished pups in the photos, you will want to detail them with paint as well.

Besides the pups, there are several accessory items you can add to your dog. A dog house, ribbons, bows , sweaters, coats and a fire hydrant. And you can find a handful of other projects online. This would be a fun project book for anyone of any age. I imagine it would be ideal for parents and their children to enjoy together.

I highly recommend this book

Format: Paperback
Although I'm just a beginner at the cutting and folding techniques of origami and kirigami, I have enjoyed using these techniques for many years. Since Paper Pups comes with the templates and easy instructions I thought it would be fun to try to create some cute little doggies. The projects are ranked by level of difficulty and even though the Chihuahua was at the intermediate level, that's the one I had to try because I have two real ones! It was pretty easy to follow, even for me, and I first copied the template onto cardstock and then cut it out and followed the folding instructions. In order to color it with similar markings to my own dogs, I used acrylic paints. They say any medium will be fine other than oil based paints. I thought it turned out pretty cute and I even copied the template at a smaller size to make a puppy, too! There's 35 dogs in Paper Pups, so you should be able to find one you like, too!
