Earlier this week, my mum and sister flew over to the UK to visit us. We took them on a road trip to visit Scotland. My sister is a proper Singaporean Chinese who can’t live without noodles or rice. So we went out to eat Chinese food for most of our meals on our trip. I came across an old fashion dumpling restaurant in Edinburgh and they have these paper wrappers for the chopstick. It has been a long time since I have seen these wrappers in restaurants. It triggered memories of how my Japanese friend taught me to make an Origami Chopstick stand. This is to keep the tip of the chopstick clean if the restaurant didn’t provide chopstick stands.
I only managed to get a single wrapper as my children kept stealing the wrappers to play with it. In the following pictures, the wrapper is quite creased. If I ever get hold of an original wrapper, I will take a better picture. So for now, please bear with it.
Fold the wrapper from one of the ends inwards to a length of 3 cm. Keep folding inwards for the rest of the length of the wrapper. Fold in half along down the length. Pinch in the sides to make it stand.
