Two Toilegami folds today are variations on a theme – a nod to a Brahms concert I listened to recently. The theme is “Pleat Folds” which I used in a recent blog.
This time, two sheets of tissue are torn off. The pleats are folded, alternating valley and mountains, on the sheets rather than on the roll. Then, either the fan handle or pot is created followed by insertion of the pleats.
The fan <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXBrbDlnmHs> is easier by far. I spent too much time fiddling around with the pleats in the pot, trying to spread them evenly apart <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z0y6vChDxQ&index=1&list=PLpK9xg0RaLqQWpTsuUd5ItQxYgYzXfj9R>.
Something I realized was that the instructional videos used a plush toilet paper as opposed to my 1-ply roll. Perhaps the folds and shape might hold better with heavier weight tissue.
