Origami octagonal pouch

I had fun folding these octagonal paper pouches. They can be used as coasters or opened up to hold tiny, flat things. Um, like what... Paper clips. Guitar picks. A necklace. Tea leaves. Lint. Fingernail clippings. At any rate, they're cute. I used instructions from the book Practical Origami, but I bet you could find directions online somewhere.

Have a good holiday weekend, everyone!

I remember those from my 70's childhood, but made with leather. Strong enough to hold a few coins.

How about as an envelope for a tiny invitation? Very cute.

That looks like an amazing book. I love the little pouch you made too. It would be neat adhered to the inside of a book cover filled with paper clips.

So gorgeous - would be beautiful for holding individual cookies or tiny round photo frames as a wedding favour - if you overlook the time it probably takes to create each one ;-)

These are adorable :) I love origami... I've been wanting to make an origami garland with flowers or the little balloons, and these would look cute on a garland or as ornaments, even though they're meant to be pockets ...
