Origami is an form of art that I admire. I am always amazed at the shapes than can be made with a piece of paper using many precise folds. One of my co-workers made a coaster that reminded me of a piece of origami. These coasters are very quick and easy to make. They also take such a small amount of fabric. I like the idea of making a set and tying a ribbon around them for a gift. I made 2 and I use them on my desk at work for my coffee breaks! Fun to make!
Here is where I found the directions:
