PCOC 2009 Design Challenge

Be a part of the Green movement by entering our origami challenge: PAPER or PLASTIC. Get those creative juices flowing and have some fun by folding a unique origami model from a recycled bag. You may use a single bag or multiple bags. The only rule is that the bag(s) must not be cut. Use paper or plastic (if you dare!) All submissions will be on display in the new Origami Gallery at Paper Tree, located in the heart of San Francisco’s Japantown! The models will be judged by a panel of origami experts during the Pacific Coast Origami Conference in early November, so all entries must be in by October 24 November 6, 2009.

Grand prize winner will receive a $100 Gift Certificate to Paper Tree!
