When my friend Tricia Tait attended an origami convention in Brazil, she learned to make the box in the photograph. It is made from a coke bottle cut in a half. It could be used for many purposes, but for the paper folders, it is a perfect container to carry and protect small models.
This plastic jewel is a brilliant example of the ingenuity of the Brazilian paper folders, and learning how to make it would’ve been enough for me to be satisfied of having attended the NYC convention. Needless to say, there were million things that I enjoyed at the convention, but this small box is my (pentagonal) star of 2007.
