Someone asked for a candy dish for a party, and
it reminded me that the 'cootie-catcher', 'fortune
teller' origami that many kids learn in grade school
doubles as a 4 compartment candy dish when you set it
upside down on a table.<br>I hope this is ringing a bell
because explaining how to do it may be difficult w/o
diagrams. But I'll try.<br>1. Take a square piece of paper
about 16" x 16". You can eventually make any size you
need, but a bigger paper makes it easier to
manipulate.<br>Fold it diagonally matching opposite corners and
crease. Unfold. Fold it diagonally across the other two
corners. Crease. Unfold. Now the paper creases should look
like a big X.<br>2. Fold each corner into the center
and crease.<br>3. Now you will have 4 new corners.
Fold each of those corners into the center. Now you'll
have an even smaller square.<br>4. Flip the whole
thing over. Look at the 4 corners. Fold each corner
into the center.<br>5.Press firmly to crease. <br>6.
As you look down at the paper, you will see 4
pockets. Gently put a finger into each pocket and
manipulate it into a 3 dimensional shape. If you did it
right, you'll have four pointy legs to stand it up and
four compartments on top. Put candy in each pocket.
<br>Maybe someone else on the list can post a photo of this
for you. It's pretty well known.
