It's Fun to Fold Your Own Paper Envelopes and Make Cute Little Handcrafted Notes
Being able to make your very own Origami Envelope is both fun and also practical too. Making these sweet containers from paper is something that comes in handy for occasions such as Valentine's Day (for holding your wee love letters) and for gift giving times such as birthdays and Christmas too. You can use this craft as a fun way to wrap up and present money, gift cards, small items like confetti, candy and letters too.
I've put together this handy origami and paper folding resource page to feature my favorite selection of envelope tutorials, diagrams, instructions and also videos that you can follow along to. In no time at all, you can be making your own paper containers. Enjoy my personal photos which demonstrate items that I have made too and have lots of crafting fun.

Here's a selection of the origami envelopes which I tend to fold most often because they are all quick and easy to make!
Origami Heart Envelope: You will find a complete step-by-step photo tutorial for this design over on the Heart Envelope Tutorial page.
Square Origami Envelope: This square envelope features 4 triangle flaps of paper on the front which meet in the middle to make a diamond-shaped accent. You can vary the size of these triangles to make a small diamond or large one in the middle of your envelope. Here's a video tutorial for this Cool Origami Envelope.
Rectangular Envelope with Small Diamond Fastening: This paper folded envelope is adorable. It has more of a traditional envelope shape although it's made from a square of paper. Here's the video tutorial for this Rectangle Origami Envelope.
