Dual Job Origami Cardholder

Introduction: Dual Job Origami Cardholder

About: Lego Enthusiast! Be sure to see more completely random Lego builds from robots to an adjustable phone stand. Also lover of random paper (origami) creations as well.

From the front, it is a card holder. Turn it around and write your name on the back flap that holds this piece up and you also got a nameplate! How convenient!

Step 1: Material

Use a piece of rectangular paper, graph or notebook paper is best.

Step 2: Folding Sandiches

Fold the paper in half, hamburger style. Repeat.

Step 3: Folding Hot-dogs

Now take the a flap (one of two) and fold it in half hot-dog style. Repeat on other side.

Step 4: Add the Squash Folds

Now take the top flap and squash fold. Repeat on the other side.

Step 5: Folding... Again

Take the outer flap created from the squash fold and fold on top of the other flap. Repeat on the other side.

Step 6: Create Mini-folds

Open up the paper, but not completely, just enough you see the two folds created from the squash fold on the outside. Repeat in the other side. Now take the top flap and fold it in until the top meets the fold line created from opening the paper. Repeat on the other side. Then close the paper back and repeat on other side.

Step 7: Finishing the Cardholder

Take only one of the big flaps (there should be only two... separated by a fold in the middle... also the fold that makes the space for the cards) and fold it hot-dog style. Then you are finished! Adjust and/or write your name on the back flap (to use dual job) as needed.
