Organize craftily with origami

Stationery Organizer

I have always been obsessed with craft, when I was a child I used to climb up my cupboard to keep my things safe from my brothers and now I work when my  little man is sleeping. Sometimes it’s challenging to find time too but I just can’t quit crafting. It’s like blood to my veins. I live and breathe it. 

What happened as a result is that I have crafted almost all the origami ideas from my collection. So, now I have tons of cool origami projects to bring for you all while I am working on valentine ideas coming in February weeks. Stay Tuned Friends!


Now lets have a look at the origami organizer. This flower  is a very useful organizer for all the small things we need everyday and don’t know how to keep them handy. Not something to keep forever but it can be useful for kids and small temporary projects. 

  • Kids can keep crayons and color pencils organized on their study table or when they are drawing and coloring
  • Place it in a nice basket so that it movable once it has weight in it
  • Place it in your drawers organizing your office supplies. 
  • Use it as a temporary holder for your projects that require use of small things like beads, crystals or buttons; you can keep them organized likewise and safe time as well. 

MAKE IT:

  • Take a square paper (9″ x 9″) and fold it into a triangle. Fold both the sides of the triangle in halves shaping as shown below. Pattern side down.
  • Open the paper from the centre and fold the flap upward forming the triangle. Now open the side flaps and fold the paper at the centre again.
  • Rotate the above model into the shape shown below. Now fold the top-left corner towards right side and do the same with the other side.
  • Now fold the left and the right flaps into triangles as shown and unfold them. Unfold the flap facing down followed by folding the left flap over to form an envelope shape. Now finally fold the flap below upward again.
  • Open the shape at the top and fold in the smaller triangle.
  • Fold the top left corner and bring it down right, forming a triangle and unfold it. Again fold the top left corner, but this time form a small triangle meeting at the nearest line. Now fold the small triangle upward into a smaller triangle and unfold all.
  • Open the top and fold the above formed folds inside to complete the model.
  • You will need 5 such models to complete the flower shaped organizer.
  • Glue them all together at the centre only and use paper pins to hold them together till the glue dries. You can also use double-sided tape.
  • The final shape looks like this. Remove the paper pins
  • Keep your office supplies handy in this organizer. You can also use it to keep different colored beads, candies and small similar things organized and handy.

  8. thanks friends.. :)

    origami is really fun to work with but when you are making things just keep the project in mine like if your making flowers make them for a gift or try hanging them up on the bulletin boards.. so it doesn't go waste..

    this is v cute. I was thinking about using it for separating beads as I work with them.
    I wonder if you could leave the last side un-glued and put either a ribbon or hook&loop to attach it into a star. Then it could fold up if you're not using it.
    I think I'll go try that now.
