Origami, the art of paper folding, allows you to create many shapes that may be interpreted in different ways. A trophy may take on many forms, including the form of a cup. Fold an origami trophy cup to hand to the winner of a game. You can also customize the origami trophy by writing a personal message on it. The difficulty in performing this art is in not making any cuts or using any adhesives to create a paper trophy.
Things You'll Need
- Origami paper (6 by 6 inches long)
Place the front side of the origami paper face down and fold it in half vertically. Unfold the paper.
Fold the left and right side edge to the center of the paper.
Fold the bottom left and right corner tip to the center crease line to form two triangles.
Turn the paper backward and fold the bottom tip up so a crease line is formed where the parallel sides begin.
Turn the paper backward and fold the bottom left and right corner to the center crease line to form two triangles.
Turn the paper backward and lift up the two flaps at the bottom where the two triangles appear. Pull the flaps south while press down on it to form a rectangular base for the trophy.
Tips & Warnings
- Select origami metallic paper to give your folded trophy a more realistic appearance.
- Fold the paper evenly and firmly for a smooth finish.
