This fabulous kit from Cambridge Imprint contains everything you need to make 36 large origami bobbles (also known as crane’s eggs), or 144 small ones: 36 different sheets of Cambridge Imprint patterned papers, with a beautifully produced book of instructions, all in a keepsake box covered with Cambridge Imprint paper.
To string the bobbles together into a necklace or garland you will need a needle and thread, which are not included. A garland of 144 bobbles is well over a metre long and is particularly well suited for hanging on a Christmas tree. The bobbles can also be hung individually from a loop of thread, or just sit as minute and perfect geometric sculptures on a window sill.
The bobble is an origami of medium difficulty— easier than the five-pointed star, but more difficult than the butterfly in our other kits—suitable for adults and older children. However, it is much easier to show rather than describe a process of this kind, so if you find you could do with some extra help you will find our demonstration video in the ‘How To’ section of the Cambridge Imprint website see link below:
