After making a really difficult and almost completely useless chopstick creation http://www.instructables.com/id/Mad-Chopstick-Burr/
which requires a huge amount of bits and bobs - so here is a simple and easy trick that you can make in any restaurant / takeaway that gives free chopsticks in a little paper sleeve.

Many beginners struggle to use chopsticks - this can be more easy if there is a hinge/spacer to keep the chopsticks in the correct alignment and separation.  These can be made with the paper sleeve that the chopsticks come wrapped in - my Instructable  uses a simple piece of paper because I don't have any freebie chopsticks

Step 1: Preparing the paper

Your paper should be a strip about 2.5cm / 1 inch wide.   your sleeve will be double thickness - mine is a single sheet.   Fold in half along the length - sharpen the crease with the thumbnail.  Fold in half again; you should have a v-cross section band of about 1/4 inch
