Are you familiar with Kirigami? I've spoken about it a couple of times here, but it's never been one of my big things. For those who aren't familiar, kirigami is similar to origami, but includes cutting as well as folding. Now Hiroshi Hayakawa has designed and written a book for Lark Crafts, called Paper Pups. It includes 35 dog designs that you can photocopy, cut, and fold.
I have to admit that this isn't the type of craft that generally appeals to me, but her designs are pretty darned cute. If you've got some children around, these would be a lot of fun, especially if you've got dog lovers. And what children aren't dog lovers?
If you'd like to win a copy of Paper Pups, here's what you need to do...please read this carefully. Leave me a comment here and include your email address. If I don't see your email address, I won't be able to contact you. No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person. You are welcome to spell it out if you'd prefer, for example, cyndi at mazeltovjewelry dot com. If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice! Deadline: June 12, 2013
