When I visited Alaska this summer, I unearthed boxes upon boxes of high school stuff. A lot of laughs came with the ancient photos and letters from friends who I saw nearly everyday. It was pretty cool that we didn’t just hand these letters to each other willy nilly, we found creative ways to fold them up. Here’s one of those ways. Learn how to fold a letter into a pull tab note!
I still remember how I learned to fold letters into origami hearts like these. It was sometime in highschool. I had received a letter folded into this cute little heart. I had left it in my room while I was off to school. When I got back home, that letter was unraveled on my bed. Whoever snooped to read it, couldn’t put back the humpty dumpty of a letter back together again. Did a heart-shaped letter scream love letter? I was pretty pissed off back then, but I find it extremely funny now. Read on to learn how to make an origami heart. (Scroll down to the very end to watch a video tutorial instead!)
Good things come in tiny packages! I guess one type of candy packaging wasn’t enough for me this year. This year though, there’s an origami theme going on. Here’s a simple triangle origami box or pouch that can hold some loose candy like Skittles or M&Ms.
It’s that time of the year again when I come up with different ways of packing up some halloween candy. I came up with these Milk Cartons last year, and Candy Poppers the year before that. Seems like it’s becoming a tradition on the site. Here’s an origami box and lid tutorial you can use for any occasion!

Apparently, while my mom was pregnant with me, she took a part-time job at Nordstrom (or was it JC Penney?) wrapping gifts for the holiday season. I don’t know if this story is true, or if I pieced together stories to make it to be true. Either way, it’s a great story to tell. Ang Alamat kung bakit mahilig akong mag-wrap ng regalo.
My mom loves to wrap gifts. I remember how our house in Antipolo used to have this pantry that housed all her supplies. We’d have wrapping paper for all occasions. Her stash of ribbons could rival that of Morning Glory’s (in Divisoria). The use of a gift bag was almost considered a sin. Every Christmas, I was always so excited to see what theme she’d come up with. One year, it was a shirt and tie gift bag. Another year, each gift was unique in its Japanese-inspired origami-like wrapping. Soon enough, I’d taken on the challenge myself. Why buy a gift bag when you can DIY?
