How to – making an envelope

On Wednesday I have my conference presentation. All it’s good. The paper was finished long time ago and the ppt file I managed to have it done last Friday so I can have the time to actually prepare my speech. But, as you can see, this is not going to happen’ any time soon ‘cause I’m always doing something else then the things I’m supposed to.

And today I made envelopes, from calendar paper. I event took pictures to make it like a tutorial.

Here I go. You need:

  • paper from magazines, calendars or wrapping paper
  • scissors, glue
  • maybe a pencil and a A4 sheet

My calendar paper is bigger then an A4 sheet so I had to cut it using the A4 as a model. If you are using a magazine cover you don’t need to cut anything yet, it’s already rectangular.

Next you fold the paper into three parts, two equal ones, like you were to fold it in two, leaving the upper part smaller.

Then, fold about 1 cm margin along the both sides of the paper.

Now you cut the margins from the bottom and the upper part.

You fold the remaining margins and put the bottom part on top gluing it. Or you can let the margins on the outside like I show you in the pic but I don’t usually do it ‘cause I don’t like the way it looks.

For a more elegant envelope you can cut the top flap with curved corners.

And that’s it.

You have a fun, colorful and big envelope to send to someone you love.

      I’m trying my best. I’m not yet so green as you are but I look for new recycling methods every now and then.
