Origami Envelopes

Jazz up any note with a handmade envelope. Use scrapbook paper for mailing (envelopes smaller than 3 1/2 by 5 inches cannot be mailed).

  • 5 1/8-inch square origami paper

  • 12-inch square scrapbook paper (for large envelopes)

  • Mailing labels

  • Stickers

  • Glue stick


  1. Place paper facedown. 

  2. Fold 2 opposite corners toward center so they meet. Then fold the other opposite corners toward center so they overlap. 

  3. Write a note on inside of envelope, or place a card inside. Attach a label, and secure flaps with a sticker. If mailing, adhere flaps with glue stick.
