One of the hobbies I enjoy doing is folding 3D origami. I got started after seeing a 3D origami swan and deconstructing a single triangle to figure out how to fold it.
In this video I cut sheets of paper into 1/32 rectangles. If you’re using thicker paper OR want to have thinner triangle pieces, you can cut those rectangles width-wise and make 1/64 pieces. If you do that, skip the first folding step (hot dog fold) and start with the second fold (hamburger fold).
Don’t worry if your rectangles come out uneven or mis-sized because you can hide that when folding. If the triangle still comes out weird looking you can always use it as the base of a structure or as an inverted piece (will be explained in a subsequent post) so don’t throw it away!
After folding the triangles I like to stack them into sticks of 20 and keep them in a Girl Scout thin mints box. This takes up far less room than leaving them as individual pieces, makes organizing colors much easier, and allows you to inventory your pieces.
