Cindy's book, GIRLIGAMI hits bookstores this month!
ABOUT GIRLIGAMI Girls just want to have fun, but when it comes to origami, the traditional art of paper folding hasn’t kept up with the times. While those ancient cranes are pretty, they are not enough to capture the imagination of the modern day girl. Thankfully, origami aficionado Cindy Ng is bringing this art form into the 21st century with Girligami: A Fresh, Fun, Fashionable Spin on Origami. From purses to charming valentines, this origami guide is geared towards cool crafters and is perfect for a girls’ night in with your best gal pals.

Girligami has twenty original origami creations to make with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions. Author and origami aficionado Cindy Ng’s favorite things set the stage for these unique projects that are inspired by delicious sweets, wacky critters, high-tech gadgets, falling in love, and the fashion runway.

Can’t afford a closet full of Manolos? Satisfy your shoe lust with mini pumps that are high on style, low on cost, and much more comfortable. For the dessert lovers, there are chocolate-covered strawberries and cupcakes to indulge a sweet tooth with zero fat and zero calories. From little cocktail dresses and secret love notes, to adorable animals and trendy totes, Cindy Ng provides fresh ideas and helpful tips at every step. Girligami comes alive with 300 color illustrations, 
plus one-of-a-kind preprinted origami papers to cut and fold.
