How to Make an Origami Paper Basket

This simple little basket can be made from something as simple as a sheet of paper. Use it to hold sweets, loose change, or anything light and small.

Steps
Start out with a square sheet of paper. If you can’t get square paper use a4 and fold it to get a square the tear off the side.

Make a fold from all the corners: Diagonal to diagonal and the other 2 corners. Fold the paper in half from the top to the bottom and from the left to the right. You should have 4 folds.

Take 2 opposite corners and fold them in so they meet in the middle.

Fold the 2 trapeziums in towards the middle and then stand them up. These are the sides of your box.

Take the sides that slope down and push down on them and flick the pointy bit up.

Fold it down to the level of the other sides.

Do the same to the other side.

You have made your box!
