Make an Origami Paper Cup

I have found this skill useful over the mothering years. I make cups for sharing drinks, getting water from a dribbly fountain, collecting little things we find, and dividing snacks in the car. I am demonstrating using a piece of computer printer paper. Start by making a square like this.

Tear, after scoring, or cut off the extra piece.

The fold is at the bottom of the triangle in the picture below. Fold the left hand point over.

Repeat on the other side.

Fold the first top flap down.

Turn over and fold the other top flap down.

Spread the cup open at the top. It will survive a good drink of water, but then it will get soggy.

Now, have a drink of water!
