DIY Tutorial: Origami Namecard Holder

OOH - Origami Namecard Holder Tutorial

For this super simple tutorial we’ll be making an origami card holder that requires minimal materials and time! I used double sided printed scrapbooking paper for this one but feel free to use any wrapping paper, card or coloured paper.

It’s perfect for a quick trip out when you just need some cash and cards; or perhaps just cause you need that extra card space because your wallet is packed and exploding (like mine, whoops!).

OOH - Origami Namecard Holder Materials

What you need:-

  • Paper measuring 9×9″ (A good way to find out what size your square should be is to measure the width of your largest card and multiply that by 4)
  • Bone folder/ruler/card (optional)

Step 1. With the right side facing down, fold the paper into half vertically.

Step 2. Fold the halves into halves. You should now have 3 lines down vertically.

Step 3. Using the quarter lines as a guide, fold all 4 corners inwards.

Step 4. Fold inwards at the quarter line. It should look something like this.

Step 5. Flip the whole paper around and fold downwards towards the middle mark. At this point it might be a good idea to use the bone folder to help flatten it at the folds.

Step 6. Repeat to the bottom, folding upwards this time. The bottom fold should overlap the top fold (you’ll see why in the next step).
