Square Decorations
This page is being used to collect information about the history of folded square decorations which are not presented as Folds of Beauty in a Froebelian kindergarten context, although this context may well have been the origin of the designs. Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.


At present information about these designs is in the process of being transferred in from other pages.



A number of such decorations appear in 'Occupons nos doigts' by Raymond Richard which was published by Les Editions du Cep Beaujolais in Villefranche-sur-Rhone in 1951.

Le moulin et la rosace


Etoile a 4 pointes



'Paper Folding Fun' by Robert Harbin, which was published by Oldbourne in London in 1960, contains diagrams for a 'Diamond Packet'.
