You can use two of these as inserts for a box or you can also use them as a small candy or nut dish.

Begin with the paper side facing up. Valley fold in half diagonally from corner to corner. Then unfold.
Cut along the crease you just made. You will have two triangles, each of which makes an insert.
Take one of the triangles. Valley fold one edge down about half inch (1 cm). Then fold over again. Then unfold.
Repeat step 3 on the other two sides.
Note the circled points of intersection. Valley fold through those points perpendicular to the bottom edge. Then unfold.
Note the circled points of intersection. Valley fold through those points perpendicular to the side edges. Then unfold.
Note the circled points of intersection. Valley fold to those points, bisecting the angles. Then unfold.
Note the circled point of intersection. Valley fold to the points, bisecting the angle. Then unfold.
Valley fold the corners to the creases you made in step 6.
Bring the two sides up and bring the corner to the side. The model will not lie flat.
Wrap one layer down along the crease, locking it into place.
Bring the final side up and the two corners over, mountain folding from the intersection of the valley folds to the far corners.
Valley fold the third side down, locking the two side corners.
The completed insert.
To make the other insert, fold the other triangle in the same way. The size given for the stiffened fabric will fit into a box that is 4 inches (10 cm) square.
