Envelope & Letter In One (intermediate level)


Paper (thin) 11 5/8 x 8 1/4

Step One:

Fold your paper corner to corner along the diagonal. Fig 1 & 2

The black dots show which corners you should fold to.


This is what your paper should look like after the fold. The gray area is the backside of the paper

Step Two:

Turn your paper so that the bottom is straight. Fig 1. Next take the left hand corner and the right hand corner (where I have drawn dots) and bring them together. You should make a small crease to mark the center. Next fold both these flaps in to that center mark. As you do this you will see that they will fit neatly together. Fig 3 & 4

Step 3:

Fold the top point down until the point touches the bottom edge. Fig 1. You can now open up the paper and lay it down flat.


This is what it should look like fully folded.

Step 4:

When your paper is opened it should have many crease lines. You are now ready to fold the paper into an envelope. Take the bottom right corner and fold it along the diagonal crease. Fig 1. Then fold the flap in. Fig 2. Then fold the right flap in. Fig 3

Take the bottom half and fold it up along the line that is pointed to in Fig 3. It will look like this when you have finished that fold. Fig 4

Step Five:

The final step is to tuck the flap into the form. You will see that it fits behind a flap that is inside and "locks" the sides together. That's all there is to it.
