Every time is harder to receive a hand written letter because of technology. However it's greatly appreciated! Today I'm going to show you how to fold a card in an envelope shape so you can save paper and be original.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
Something to write your message with
Step 2: Write
Use your pen, marker or crayons to write your letter or phrase. Some ideas are:
"You are the love of my life"
"Thank you for all your love!"
"You've done a great job!"
"You make me happy!"
Or any other phrase you feel inspired to share.
Step 3: First Folding
Place your letter upside down. Fold it in half and unfold it.
Fold the upper part to the center line and fold it in half again.
Step 4: Corners
Fold the two upper corners inside forming a triangle. Use your nails to mark the fold perfectly.
Step 5: Smaller Rectangle
Where you just folded the triangles fold the vertical strip to the center in both sides so you have a long rectangle.
The lower part of this rectangle will now go up until you reach 1/3 of the rectangle.
Step 6: Envelope's Lid
Now grab the lower corners and take them up as shown in the first picture making a triangle. Do the same in the other side (this will be the lid of the envelope).
Step 7: Close It
Turn it upside down so the triangle faces up. Grab it and put it inside the bottom part to close your envelope. You don't need tape to hold it close!
It's ready to be given and make somebody's day!
