Make fresh and fashionable origami projects for girls with this fun origami kit

When Cindy Ng was ten, she desperately wanted a pair of high heels, but her mother wouldn't let her have them. Even when she was old enough to wear heels, she still had to dream about looking cool--because she could barely walk in them No problem Cindy decided if she couldn't wear cool heels, at least she could fold them. And that was the beginning of Girligami...
