Easy life through practical origami: envelope

My friend Covadonga sent me a very nice step-by-step guide to making this origami envelope, originally attributed to Frances Levangia. She writes, “I made these diagrams based on paper models because otherwise I would forget how to make it, so when I like something, since I have no idea of how to diagram, I do it in this way”. Thanks Covadonga! 🙂

While searching for information on the envelope, I came across this site, where you will find a very nice collection of letterfolds and envelopes diagrammed by John Cunliffe. This same model is included among them; for those who are learning how to read diagrams, it could be interesting to compare it with Covadonga’s instructions to see how the drawings translate themselves into foldings.

  1. This is really not the correct instructions for this envelope. It does not close correctly if done like this. If you wish, a young lady has made a YouTube video. Search Rosemarie995 Envelope 7 (re-make) for a much sturdier version.

  2. Thanks for the marvelous posting! I really enjoyed reading
    it, you are a great author. I will always bookmark your blog and
