    Learn how to make a long boat shaped origami serving dish, from a rectangular sheet of paper. Great for serving snacks or as a desk tidy for pencils.

    This is a variation of the traditional origami box, and is very easy to make.

    You'll need 1 sheet of rectangular paper, use A4 or letter paper. 

    If you'd like a really thin boat or dish, use a thinner/longer rectangle.

    There is also a more complicated origami boat dish, that has a inside-out action at the end, here.
