Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need...
•1 piece of paper

Step 2: Making a Square

If you have origami paper, you can use that. But if you only have computer paper, then follow this step to make your paper into a square. Fold a corner down until it lines up with the side of your paper as shown. Then cut the rectangle off.

Step 3: Turn As Shown

Step 4: Let's Begin!

Now take the bottom right corner of your paper and fold it up until the tip touches the edge as shown.

Step 5: Folding

Now take the top left corner and fold it down until its tip touches the opposing edge as shown.

Step 6: Fold As Shown

Step 7: More Folding

Now there will be two layers of paper shown. Take the top layer and fold over as shown.

Step 8: Repeat

Now take the other layer and fold it over on the other side as shown and, voila, you have an origami cup!

Step 9: Many Uses!

Now (hopefully) you have a multi-useful origami cup that can hold stuff! Thanks for viewing and leave any suggestions or requests for any tutorials! =)
