Introduction: Easy Origami Envelope

About: Hello! I do craft.

This instructable will tell you how to make a really simple origami envelope. The card or letter inside will have to be smaller than the width of the A4 or A3 paper you are using.


  • a card, letter etc. ( you need this to determine the size of the envelope)
  • A4 or A3 paper
  • a sticker or some tape

Step 1:

Take your soon to be envelope contents and put them in the middle of the the short side of your paper.

Step 2:

Fold the sides of the paper inwards to the middle. If the pieces of folded paper overlap too much, it is best to trim them (cut a section off along the lenghts of paper.)

Step 3:

Now you need to fold the paper upwards and back on itself. You should end up with a open sided pouch structure

Step 4:

Now fold both of the corners into the middle. If they dont quite reach the previously folded paper then you need to unfold them and cut some paper off of the top width. Try folding again untill it looks like the picture above

Step 5:

Take the triangle you have just made at the top and fold it down towards the main part of the envelope.

Step 6:

Secure the bottom part of the flap to the envelope with a sticker or tape.

Step 7: And There You Have It, Your Very Own Origami Envelope!
