Create beautiful paper models of 20 orchid species!
Display native orchids with these realistic paper replicas that you simply pop-out and glue together--no scissors required! These paper sculptures were produced under the direction of scientists at the North American Orchid Conservation Center, which is located at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, Maryland.
This kit features:
- A full-color book presenting fascinating information about the orchid species.
- Precut pieces for 20 beautiful 3D paper orchids
- Detailed assembly instructions for each model, which are ranked by difficulty
- A display base for each model
The accompanying book explains the efforts that are underway to conserve threatened and endangered native North American species. The project introductions show photos of the finished models as well as stunning photos of each model's living counterpart.
