A Complete Guide to Folding, Floating, and Functional Origami Sailboats

These boats don't just look nice on a shelf--they're made to move! Lew Rozelle has created original designs for paper sailboats that actually float and sail in water. His designs are based on traditional Japanses models, but Lew's boats do not have to be folded and then turned inside out. The traditional step is difficult and can frequently result in ripping the paper. Traditional Japanese models are also unable to trap the wind and move on their own. But all of the models in Origami Sailboats catch wind currents, float and retain their shape in water. Believe it or not, these paper boats hold up in water for several hours, or even several days if they're made from freezer paper or wax paper. This is a great activity for parents and children, novices and accomplished folders alike. If you like paper airplanes or origami rockets, you'll love Origami Sailboats.
