This origami envelope designed by Simon Andersen is super easy to make. This origami letterfold will only take you about 2 minutes or less to make. Make from 1 sheet of rectangular or square paper.

If you use square paper, you’ll need to fold the bottom edge up twice (double up) at 0:56 – easier to just use rectangular paper!

Such an easy envelope! This is known as an origami ‘letterfold’ as you’re meant to write your letter or note on the paper and then fold it up into the letterfold. The note will be hidden inside.

Of course you can put a seperate letter or item inside the envelope too.
