Make cool things with paper
The team at Popagami got in touch to see if I fancied having a go at their new Combi Pack. To be honest I’d never heard of Popagami but it sounded intriguing so I searched for their website to see what exactly it was.
The name did give it away slightly and it turned out it was origami animal fun. Popagami is a modern twist on the traditional Japanese art of paper folding (origami) to create fun, colourful animals. They suggest filling the large ones with sweets and giving to a friend and the smaller ones make adorable finger puppets.
I thought the pack look quite fun, even for adults, so decided to give it a go.
I had a go at four of the large animals and my first three attempts were rather shocking. I am definitely not a natural at origami. After these terrible attempts I had to pop onto their website and watch the video to see exactly where I was going wrong. I managed to make Gilly Giraffe on my fourth attempt and was rather chuffed with her. Very soon there will be little Popagami creatures all over the house!
I think these are probably most suited as a children's gift, but also a fun adult challenge with your family at Christmas!
The pack I received is available for £7.99 on their website at www.popagami.com
