Many people have mentioned how much they love their multi-use folding tool. With it we don’t have to carry a bone folder, toothpicks, skewers, or a pointer for teaching. It is a great all-in-one tool for folding paper.
The best thing about the tool is that it reduces finger stress when folding many pieces -don’t we tend to overdo it!
I must confess (shhh!) that I have eight of these tools for my personal use in different corners of my house. And, I always carry at least two with me when I go out.
Recently, my friend Tony Cheng created a nifty case to carry and protect this tool. Life is good!
Tony’s case can be made out of a 8.5 x 11 (US Letter size) or A4 rectangle. If you make it from a bright piece of colored paper it will be easy to spot inside a crowded bag. Also, the little triangular tab at the top of the case makes for easy insertion and removal of the tool.
A special note to watercolor painters: Tony Cheng’s carrying tool case is perfectly designed to hold a few fine paint brushes and will protect delicate bristles from damage. Life is even better!
Be sure to check this out and make a case or two. Thank you Tony for letting me show how to fold your carrying case in this five-minute video.
And speaking of cases, in case you weren’t aware of it,
you can purchase the multi-use folders HERE through Origami Spirit.
