Origami is nice. Oragami that's practical, now that's awesome! I've been experimenting with creating an origami box and while my attempts look pretty rough (Sorry Nick!), they are indeed functional:
That's a box made out of aluminum foil, printer paper, 3x5 note card and a Post-It Note. As you can tell above, the aluminum foil version has water in it and a cork floating around. So yeah, it's water tight.
The note card material was recycled from a TODO list, and the scribbles on it are actually a nice bonus. As for the aluminum foil version, I'm going to have to see what outdoorsy uses I can put it to. Maybe I can find a size that works as a little alcohol stove? We'll see.
Here's the video that I learned the technique from:
I'm still a ways off from Pinterest grade work; but it's definitely fun to be playing with a new skill. It reminds me of my Scouting days when I'd struggle to learn a new knot. Good times.
