Learn how to make an origami Christmas tree envelope. These origami envelopes or pockets are perfect to write Xmas messages or give little gifts such as money, gift cards or even tea! No glue required.

Who likes tea? I know a lot of people who do, you could make a pretty cool handmade Christmas gift by selecting different teas and making a “gift book” – yep, I did just make that up.

Other things to do with them: write “Merry Christmas” in them and give to people. Or use them as gift tags on Christmas presents, or.. pop some money in them, or make a book of redeemable chores.

I’m not sure why I ended up making them into a little book. I just ended up with so many of them and thought they might look cute as a booklet.

I hope you enjoy making these origami Christmas tree envelopes!
