Origami Business Card Holder with Washi Tape Details

washi tape origami business card holderThese business card holders combine two of my favorite things, origami and washi tape.  They’re easy to make and only require two supplies, paper and tape.  This project is great for origami beginners since the folds are all straight forward.  There’s no squash folds or anything tricky like that.

Supplies:

8 x 8in square piece of paper

washi tape

Now you can decorate the inside and outside of the card anyway you want.  I matched up two strips of washi tape to create a pattern.  A while back, I discovered a lot of the geometric patterned tape will make one large pattern when lined up in strips.  For example, I could have kept lining up the tape in the picture above to create one seamless print.
