"I love to be able to recommend the best for my readers, and Benjamin's unique talent of merging two Japanese art forms- origami and bonsai, creates an exciting new form of paper art! This unique book "kit" will teach you the art step-by-step with simple illustrated tutorials, and even a DVD to help you along! You can create beautiful delicate paper flowers and leaves and essentially create your own unique paper bonsai!" -Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom blog
"I've purchased a few origami flower kits in the past and the paper with this kit is by far the best suited for creating lifelike flowers." Origami
"Origami Bonsai is lovely, as are all of Ben's books, instructional DVDs, and paper creations." -Ann Martin, author of All Things Paper
"With the holidays approaching, folding an origami bonsai would be more thoughtful than spending hours at the mall or online. Highly recommend!" -Cindy Ng, Origami Blog
"Always wanted to make a bonsai, finally could make [it] when I happen to lay my hands on wonderful Origami Bonsai Kit by Tuttle Publishing, which contains detailed simple instructions [and] clear photo diagrams, a DVD with awesome video instructions for each model by the creator himself and also the paper required. The kit is just awesome." -Origami Love

"...the greatest savings of time and energy for the beginning origamist is provided by the vari-colored folding papers contained in the kit, along with Mr. Coleman's effective instructions in folding. His 'glow-fold' technique simplifies the learning process for the beginner, reducing trial and error."
"I can't wait to make more of these origami bonsai sculptures as center pieces for our Thanksgiving dinner and for holiday decorations. Perhaps I could also give them out as holiday gifts. I think this kit itself makes a great holiday gift to people who loves craft projects as well!" -Yuki's Origami Blog
"This origami kit from Tuttle Publishing contains several tools to teach you how to make unbelievable floral designs and sculptures." -Dana Byerwalter, All Free Paper Crafts blog
