This is easy to make and only takes a couple minutes. If you made a card and have no envelopes you can just make this one out of regular printer paper.

Total Time: 10min


  • paper
  • tape
  • marker
  • scissors


  1. Fold your peice of paper in half the long way.
  2. Unfold the paper back to full size.
  3. Fold in each corner to the middle line.
  4. Fold in the side of the paper about a half an inch.
  5. Fold the bottom of the paper up to the corners.
  6. Fold the top of the envelope over the folded lower part.
  7. Unfold it and put your card in the envelope
  8. Tape both of the sides together and close the bottom half of the envelope.
  9. Fold the top part of the envelope over and tape it shut.

Great idea. If I may add one thing -- Just make a small, maybe 1/2 inch, fold at the top to give you a gauge for folding the corners.


That way you don't have a fold all the way down your pretty paper.
