Learn how to fold a little origami graduation hat to give as a congratulatory gift! This origami mortarboard is made from 1 sheet of square paper, you can also make a little paper tassel to go on top!

This is a modification of my previous ‘origami round twisted box‘. The top flat part is now completely flat, whereas before it was curved/rounded.

I am making mine for a relative who is graduating soon! I hope they like it. You could also make this to be worn by a teddy bear or other stuffed toy!

It can also be a box/bowl of course. At one point it looks like it could be a candle holder or egg cup too!
