Learn how to make a pretty geometric origami bowl or dish, using a sheet of square paper. You can make another one to fit inside as the inner layer.
Or you could use this box upside down as a pretty stand for your origami animals too!
This origami pot starts off with a pentagon, which is shown at the beginning, if you have a preferred method of making a pentagon, you can skip to 2:44 in the video.
A cool thing about this origami model is to use it as a box, there is a twisting motion that happens to get the one on top of the other, making it pretty hard to open again!
Originally I was going for a drum or circus stand shape, I guess it still could be those things.

You will need:
– 1 sheet of square paper for each
I used 15 x 15 cm
(for thicker paper, make one sheet a little smaller, or trim a bit more off
at the point you’re cutting the pentagon, so that it will fit inside nicely)
Final Size: 6.5 x 2.2 cm ish
