|The Origami Wallet - sticker holder. Nothing fancy, just an easy, easy craft to share with a child|
|Start with a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook paper|
Here are instructions. I think you can probably make one just from looking at the photos.
Step 1. Fold the paper in half
Below are the 2 halves folded to the middle.
Step 3. Fold each corner down to so that the fold makes a right triangle that just touches the crease line.
Step 4. Do that for all 4 corners.
Step 4. Fold the flaps back down.
Step 5. Flip the paper over so the folded corners are underneath.
Step 6. This is one of the harder steps. Fold the end up to reveal the folded in corners. The only thing hard is that you fold it just to the tip of the triangle made by the folded corners is visible.
Step 8. Completed wallet. Ta Dah!! When you close the wallet fold it where it already has the center line crease, no need to make new creases.
Step 9. I found that when I gave it to kids without taping it, the first thing they did was unfold it. They can't help it. So now I tape it in 3 places - a tiny piece where the ends are tucked in and in the middle to hold the paper down inside the wallet.
You can see where the tape holds the tucked in pieces.
Small piece of tape to hold down the paper in the middle. That way stuff doesn't slide in that area which would be hard to reach without unfolding the wallet.
See how nicely stickers fit in the wallet. A dollar for "Best Patient of the Day" fits when folded in half. Usually I hide the dollar behind the stickers so it's more of a surprise for the child.
This is so easy to make and the kids love them. I just thought someone might find the idea useful so I am sharing it on the Frilly and Funkie challenge this month.
