Origami Square Envelope instructions and tutorial

Learn how to make this beautiful DIY origami envelope with 1 square of paper. It's perfect for a Christmas card or invitation or to wrap a flat gift (money or an origami heart). Making your own paper envelope is easy, just follow the easy step by step instructions of the origami envelope / flat box tutorial.

To make the paper envelope, you only need 1 square of paper with different colors on each side. You don't need glue and you don't need tape, and it's easy to open and close the envelope. In the video I use 15x15 cm (6x6 inch) origami paper. It's easier with large paper, so you can also cut a square from a A4 or Letter size sheet, or better from a page of a magazine so that you have a different pattern of colors on each side.

On the front, the envelope box shows the two colors of the paper and you can choose to make a square or a 8 pointed star. The DIY envelope opens on the back.

In the next video, I will show you how to make a variation of this flat box: a pinwheel origami envelope, and also a cool origami pinwheel box with a lid and a candy cane pattern (perfect to wrap Christmas gifts).
