I've been making art and doing crafts/DIYs for as long as I can remember - even longer than I can remember. I was/still am the resident card maker for every event, I once made hundreds of eid cards and sold them all, giving the proceeds to charity. I've made house decorations, boxes, bags, beds for my dolls, cushions, dresses - I was that one girl who used to borrow all the crafting books from the library.(I still do, but usually end up just staring at all the pretty photos and never actually making any of it because I either don't have the time or because I waste all my time available being mesmerised by the beautiful end products displayed within the pages of the books); so it seems strange that I've never shared any DIYs. I attempted to one year, but forgot to photograph the first half of my endeavours so the idea fell flat - but it's finally happening.A heck of a lot of you requested I do DIYs so here's my first instalment, nothing hard, actually it's very very simple and takes around five minutes but if you all enjoy this I'll definitely do more, and might start videoing them too.
STEP ONE: fold your square of paper into a triangle: (it can be any size, I had a few origami paper squares lying around so used them and measured my other pieces of paper coinciding with their size)
STEP TWO/THREE: fold the two tips of the triangle into the middle tip to make a smaller square.
STEP FOUR: unfold those two flaps (you should now have two crease lines where you folded from step two)
STEP FIVE: fold the top point of the triangle down to the end so that it fits into the crease lines that have been made.
REPEAT STEP ONE-FOUR SO YOU HAVE THREE OF THESE PIECES.
STEP SIX: line each of the pieces in a row and slot them into each of the side 'pockets' so that you create a chain. then bring round the chain so that it makes a circle-esque shape and slot the last folds into each other.
STEP SEVEN: lastly all you need to do is stick down the base flaps and decide what you're going to store in these little boxes. You can keep tape, paper-clips or anything else you have lying around - and they're a great way of keeping track of all those small objects that often get misplaced because they have no real storage place.
