If you want your origami card holder to store business cards, you need to start out with a 8 1/4" Origami Paper
If you want to use it to hold credit cards, then you need a slightly larger
9 inch Origami Paper
This is because credit cards are slightly larger than business cards.
Origami Card Holder Step 1: Start out with a square origami paper, color side down. We are using the 8 1/4" Origami Paper for this origami.
Origami Card Holder Step 2: Fold the paper in half vertically. Crease well and unfold.
Origami Card Holder Step 3: Fold both the right and left side to meet the center line. Crease well and unfold.
Origami Card Holder Step 4: Fold the corner to meet that 1st vertical line, starting with the bottom right corner.
Origami Card Holder Step 5: Repeat for the other 3 corners.
Origami Card Holder Step 6: Now fold both the right and left sides to meet at the center line.
Origami Card Holder Step 7: Flip paper over.
Origami Card Holder Step 8: Now fold the top edge down, up to the tip of the inverted "V" shape.
Origami Card Holder Step 9: Fold the bottom edge up, so that the edges slightly overlap with the top part.
Origami Card Holder Step 10: Your origami card holder is complete! You can now use it to carry business cards.
The 8 1/4" origami paper makes an origami card holder that is approximately 2 1/16 inch (height when the card holder is closed) x 4 inch length.
A regular business card is generally 2" in height x 3.5 in length. So the business card fits nicely in the origami card holder.
A credit card is generally larger 2 2/16" height x 3 6/16" length so it won't fit if you use the 8 1/4"paper. But it should fit if you use the larger
9 inch Origami Paper.
