Fold Your Own Origami Envelope

It’s a bit late to post these in time for christmas, but how about sending your thank you notes in these hand-made origami envelopes?

Make your own origami envelopeFold your own origami envelope - laid out flat

This is a simple design that’s folded from a single sheet of paper, and whatever is written inside is completely hidden when folded – a nice surprise for whoever recieves it.

This may not comply with US postal regulations, so check carefully if you’re sending letters around America – you can always put it inside another envelope, or just stick to hand-delivery for people who live close.

I found this on Instructables, “a venue for showing what you make and how others can make it”. There’s loads of projects on there, but not much in the way of paper crafts at the moment.

  1. Hey, I saw this same envelope fold posted on instructables too! it even prompted me to sign up for an account there, although I haven’t posted anything yet.

    It also nudged me to look up some more envelope folds, which lead me to this page:

    http://www.ghh.com/elf/index.html, which is a large repository of envelope and letter folding diagrams.

    fascinating! some of them are quite intricate. it also goes into quite a bit of history as well.

    take a look if you get a chance!

    Eric,

    thanks for the tip, there’s some great stuff there – although the diagrams are a bit small!

    I have a couple of origami books that include envelope folds, Advanced Origami by Didier Boursin, and The New Origami by Steve and Megumi Biddle – both are a good starting point for beginners (Although I don’t think you fit into that category!)
