This one´s for Tony….

Tony spørger ( meget relevant) hvordan man folder firkantede potter, da man ikke kan købe det skønne plantesæt  jeg viste i forrige indlæg, uden at man har en onkel i Amerika, der kan sende det videre.

Jeg har fundet det her, håber det besvarer dit spørgsmål Fred

 

Take a double sheet of tabloid sized newspaper. You don’t want it glossy, you want it to rot down quickly. Like this, from the Indy, a paper that I find rots down remarkably well!

Right… Square it up so the edges and corners are all level, and then fold one corner across diagonally like so. You’re after a nice clean fold into the corner.

This is the only time you need to cut anything; cut the side bit off so that you’ve got a square.

Take the triangle you have and fold it in half again, to a smaller triangle like this.

And now, unfold it back to a square again, see you’ve now got some diagonal folds made? You’ll need those later.

Start folding the four points of the square to the centre, like this:

When all four are folded in, it looks like this. Theres a name for this in origami, its called a blintz.

Now you have to use a bit of judgement, you need to fold it into three sideways, so start folding one side in:

And then the other:

Now unfold that again, and fold it into three the other way:

And unfold again. So you’ve now divided your blintz into nine little squares.

Unfold the top and the bottom triangle flaps from the middle of the square, like this:

Now it gets a little fiddly. Remember you folded the square into three in each direction? Well, use those folds to raise the left and right sides up like this, so you’ve got the middle third flat, the side third on either side raised.

You’re wondering how to turn this into a plant pot? Well, the points of the square that you folded out now come back in. As they do so, squash in the flaps that doing so makes like this:

So when both of them are folded in on the first side you bring in, it looks like this:

Now fold that point over and down into the middle of the pot:

And repeat those last steps to make the final side of the pot:

Giving you the final pot! I’ve put a pound coin next to it for scale.

Måske et fint lille påske projekt…….

Jeg siger tak til http://forum.downsizer.net/viewtopic.php?t=23238&start=0 for lån af projektet og må straks tilføje at jeg desværre ikke har haft tid til at afprøve det men hører gerne hvis der er nogle der kaster sig ud i det
