Don't have a green thumb or infinite patience, but still love the intricacy and grace of tiny bonsai trees? This kit is for you! Create four paper models while learning about the history and tradition of bonsai. 
Bonsai is a realistic representation of nature in the form of a miniaturized tree. This beautifully illustrated guide leads you through the construction of four colorful paper bonsai models—one for each season. Fully illustrated and printed on heavy duty card stock, then precision cut by a laser, these mini masterpieces will add a touch of zen serenity to any office or home décor.

The four models included are:
  • Spring—cherry blossom tree
  • Summer—orange tree
  • Fall—red maple tree
  • Winter—Podocarpus tree

The author

Amy Spungen's experience researching bonsai for Paper Garden Bonsai led her to a deep appreciation for the art of bonsai...and to the realization that she is too impatient to grow her own. She is therefore grateful to live in Highland Park, Illinois, near the Chicago Botanic Garden, so that she can enjoy its stellar bonsai collection.
