Origami Photo Memo Holder Step 1: Start with a large 12 inch x 12 inch (30cm x 30cm) square paper, color side down. You can use the regular 6 inch origami paper too but the end result will be a rather small (~3 inch wide) memo holder.

Thicker and sturdier paper like cardstock or scrapbook paper works well for this origami.

Fold paper in half on the horizontal axis. Crease well and unfold.

Origami Photo Memo Holder Step 2: Fold paper in half on the vertical axis. Crease the center only to mark the spot. This is to avoid unnecessary creases on our memo holder.

You can modify Steps 3 and 9 to make the photo memo holder larger. Do not fold the left and right sides all the way to the center. Leave maybe 2 to 4 inches (~5-10cm) and you'll end up with a wider holder that can fit a regular 4R photo.

Here's the larger origami photo memo holder...
