Make an Origami Sailboat

We love this nautical-themed craft from Krystin Marsh, photo stylist for flash-sale site The Foundary. Here's how:

  1. Begin with a square piece of paper, any size.
  2. To make a square, fold paper diagonally and cut off the excess paper.
  3. To make the boat, begin by folding one of the folded points inward toward the other side at a slight angle. The tip of the point you are folding will be the top of the boat.
  4. Open the square back up and do a "reverse" fold to create the sides of the boat. Your ship is set to sail!
