I often need a teeny envelope. Do you?
Something for a few golden coins, or seeds, or paper tags or just a sweet note.
Here is one you can make from one square of paper.
Turn the sheet over, so the blank side is facing you, then fold it in half on the diagonal as shown.
Fold the top point back until it reaches the bottom edge.
Fold the right side over about 1/3 of the way, and make a crease.
Fold the left side over about 1/3 and make a second crease.
Turn back the bottom point on itself, as shown.
Gently slip your finger into this small triangle and open it out.
Press this new square flat to make a catch for the envelope’s lid.
Fold the top point of the lid down and tuck the point into the catch.
(The fold should match the horizontal line that can already be seen inside the envelope).
Fill your envelope with your treasures.
We glued a little punched out tag to the front.
Once your envelope is filled, you can also glue the point into the catch to ensure it won’t come loose.
Happy treasure finding!
