Well there were several of my blog followers that were interested in how my housekeeper created her toilet paper origami. I sat down and figured it out and here is the tutorial for those of you that REALLY want to beautify your 'tank'....LOL
Start with your Toilet paper roll like this...I tore off a few of the crinkled first sheets.
Tear off 1 square as shown. This will become your 'fan'.
Fold the square every 3/8 inch back and forth like an accordion. Crease as you fold.
Here you can see how the sqaure begins to fold into a 'strip'.
Find the center of your folded tp strip and pinch it together firmly. It will create a fan shape. Set aside.
Next unroll your tp roll with the paper rolling off the top as shown this is important.
Take the bottom square and fold the corners in to meet in the center.
This will form a point.
I suggest your point be sharp for a better look.
Then fold the point upward and crease firmly.
This part is tricky to explain and take pictures one handed!
You take the outer corners of the triangle and fold them under.
Make sure you crease firmly on the sides to help the paper maintain its form.
When you roll the paper back up you end up with a little pocket. Take your fan and pinch it together and place in the pocket.
Apparently my housekeeper has been doing this for awhile as hers look MUCH better than mine LOL. And for the record this took me about 2 minutes to fold while taking pictures. It's pretty simple and it really does give a nice look to plain old TP.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. IF you use it, blog it etc. let me know spunsugarquilt-designs at yahoo dot com.
