Kind of Origami

One of my colleagues gave us karintoh, sweet crunchy snacks, the other day. They were put in the cute paper bags made with washi, Japanese paper.
I couldn't throw them away. I kept them and today I made pochi-bukuro with them.
Pochi-bukuro is a small envelope. We usually put some money in it and give to someone. It used to be a manner to roll money up with paper when you give money. That manner become old-fashined but still exists. You sometimes just use an envelope, sometimes use pochi-bukuro.
You can buy them at stationary stores. You can also make them with coloured paper, origami or chiyogami. I sometimes keep pretty wrapping paper and make pochi-bukuro with it. It's so fun.
