Tuttle Publishing is please to announce authors and co-founders of the internationally recognized Origamido Studio, Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander will release their newest origami kit, LaFosse & Alexander's Origami Flowers Kit worldwide on July 15.

Origami Flowers Kit is the result of LaFosse & Alexander's 3-year stay with their “Origami Do Experience” Waikiki exhibition in Hawaii, inspired by the lush foliage and brilliant, fragrant blossoms. "Folders have always loved our previous Tuttle Origami Flowers kit and kept asking for new designs. During our stay in Hawaii, our mountain hikes and visits to several amazing Hawaiian gardens inspired us to create what I consider a remarkable new set of classic designs, such as our Ohana Orchid, a Tulip for Betty, a Rose for Irene, and a new Plumeria blossom," said Alexander.

The kit contains 180 sheets of origami paper in brilliant colors and a full-color 96-page instruction book with clear diagrams and photos. Projects range from simple and flat (great for making cheerful greeting cards), to the more challenging, sculptural blooms that make stunning arrangements, bouquets, and displays. As an added bonus, included in the kit is an instructional DVD where the authors demonstrate how to fold each project. "The instructional DVD in our recent titles Origami Butterflies, Dollar Origami, Geometric Origami and Planes for Brains was very well received and it made us realize how important video has become to the new generation of folders tackling any 3D origami projects," said LaFosse. "The booklet coupled with the DVD makes folding and shaping 3D origami flower blossoms that much easier,” added Alexander. Origami Flowers Kit can be pre-ordered online or in bookstores prior to its release.
