Beautiful Origami Paper Using Gum Wrappers

| Sweets , Origami

Rather than just let the small piece of paper that wraps around individual sticks of gum go to waste, Japanese snack-maker Lotte decided to get playful. For each of their seven different flavors of gum, the firm created a series of graphic wrappers, a total of 58 different designs, each with their own distinct look.

The Lotte Origami Club, as it’s called, was borne out of that characteristically Japanese word mottainai, which embodies the meanings of the words reduce, reuse recycle and respect. Spoon & Tamago has the full story, including links to instructions. Click on the link below to learn more.
