Origami Envelope

P1450641
This very practical design is from Origami Note Cards by Florence Temko. It comes with step-by-step instructions for 15 handmade stationery projects along with 48 large sheets of double-sided origami paper. The colorful folding paper, suitable for a variety of occasions, is patterned on one side and has a coordinating solid color on the other. Here an 8" square folds into a 4 3/4 by 5 3/4" envelope, perfect for your handmade cards. No scissors or tape used, just a little glue. Tutorial below.

The Origami Note Cards kit is available in both my Canadian and USA Amazon Stores and worldwide at tuttlepublishing.com. Tuttle has long been known for—everything from Asian literature and language learning to cooking, art, crafts and design. Check out their fabulous Fall 2011 catalog at Tuttle Publishing.

  2. I learned that you can make a artsy envelope, and you don't even need a pair of scissors or tape.

  8. I used to make little boxes to place gifts in. I haven't been doing origami for a long time. I think starting up again by making these notecards would be great.
