Origami Tote Bag Folding InstructionsThis origami tote bag is a really fun one for kids, especially girls. You can even use a smaller paper to fold a tote bag perfect for dolls and a larger paper to make a more practical sized tote bag. Who needs Prada when you've got your own original tote bag?! This is not a traditional origami and does need a cut to form the "handle" of the bag.

Origami Tote Bag Step 1: Start with a 6 inch square origami paper color side down. We use a patterned origami paper that is slightly thicker and sturdier than the regular plain color origami paper.
Origami Tote Bag Step 2: Fold in half along the horizontal axis to form a triangle.
Origami Tote Bag Step 3: Fold down just the top flap so that the tip lines up with the bottom. Crease well and unfold.
Origami Tote Bag Step 4: Now, we will fold the left side over, making sure that it lines that with the crease you just made in Step 3.
Origami Tote Bag Step 5: Repeat for the right side, again making sure the it lines up with the crease.
Origami Tote Bag Step 6: Flip the paper over.
Origami Tote Bag Step 7: Fold in half, bringing the right side over to the left.
