Toilet Paper Diamond Fold

This toilet paper diamond fold is not much harder to make compared to the classic triangle fold, but it’s different enough to make people look twice. It’s not everyday you see a diamond in the bathroom!

Step 1:

Pull approximately one and a half “squares” of toilet paper away from the toilet roll. Valley fold along the diagonal. It doesn’t matter if you fold from left to right or vice versa.

Step 2:

Valley fold along the diagonal one more time along the other direction.

Step 3:

Valley fold the pointed-tip upwards. This hides the raw edges of the toilet paper.

Step 4:

Mountain fold (fold behind) the left and right corners of the toilet paper. Make sure the folds are at a 45 degree angle; the bottom-edge of the toilet paper should meet in the middle behind the model.

Step 5:

Roll the toilet paper up or down a little so the diamond-shape is nicely center.

Just to be clear, it should be noted that this shape is not really a “diamond”. It is a square balanced on one of its corners (or vertices). But, for better or worst, it is called a diamond because of its orientation, and because it is a way to distinguish it from a square. In fact, in mathematical terms, there is no shape as a “diamond”. The shape we call “diamond” (as in a deck of playing cards) is formally called a rhombus or lozenges.
