Origami for paper trash holder
Basically anything letter sized like:
- Bank advertisement
- old class notes
- old magazines
- anything that is a rectangle shape and is not easily ripped
- A container for light weight items if the paper material is thick enough
- Use to hold small pieces of trash like seeds if you are eating fruits, peanuts, pistachios, sunflowers seeds, and so on…
- A hat?
- etc, be creative~
Then fold in half short ways (hamburger style)
Fold the paper in half longways (hotdog style)
Note: Steps 1&3 are interchangable
Pinch the creases that were made in the previous step together,
forming two rectangles put on top of each other in their corners.
Unfold paper (there should be 6 creases)
Pinch the diagonal creases shortways so that it forms a pentagon (a square with triangle on top)
if you get this:
flip both flaps to get this (no insides appearing):
Fold in the side flaps to the center, so that the triangle is smaller and the rectangle bigger.
and fold the flaps on the other side
Fold down the straight edge opposite of the triangle both sides
Tuck the loose corners on the edge flaps beneath the flaps that reach the flaps
Tuck in all four corners
Spread open from the top
