Learn how to make a folded paper envelope

Kate Pullen
This is a really great project for people who want to make their own envelopes but don't have a template to hand. This project uses a square of paper and this can be any size you wish. So using the same technique you can make large envelopes for handmade cards, medium envelopes to add to scrapbook pages and tiny envelopes to use as gift tags or even as decorations. These make great count-down or Advent calendar type decorations and also can be used as Christmas tree decorations!

DIY folded envelopes are quick and simple to make. All that is required is a sheet of square paper. Use a piece of decorative paper, such as a sheet of scrapbooking paper, to make a striking envelope or create your own handmade designer papers using your favorite rubber stamping techniques.

These envelopes are perfect for adding a special finishing touch to handmade cards or make smaller versions to use as gift tags. They can be used in other ways too, for instance attach a few handmade envelopes to a piece of ribbon and hang this from a notice board as a DIY organizer, this is a great way to store important pieces of paper.

Materials Required to Make a DIY Folded Envelope

  • A piece of square paper
  • Double sided tape
  • Ruler, pencil, scissors, bone folder (optional)
