There are 3 ways to create an envelop
Grab a sheet of wallpaper about twice the format of your envelop. In case of any doubts, a default 8.5 x 11 inch format is sufficient; you can easily bend and halve it before you start if you want a smaller cover. Evenly unfold the sheet. Get a square half the height of your initial figure.
Glue the open side together. Apply adhesive strip to safely seal the two open sides of the square, keeping the top side open. Pleat the top down to form a trap. Do a small tab by folding down the open side of the square. In this way, the mail is prevented from dropping out of the envelop.
Flip the lid down again afterwards. Lay a thin adhesive line along the inside rim of the door and push the door down. In this way, the cover is kept shut until the receiver opens it. While you can try out different formats of papers, one size (8.5 x 11 inches) will do.
Half pleat the lengthways. Adjust the sides of the sheet to make sure the pleat is even and push the pleated side down with your finger to make a pleat. Then you can open the sheet of wallpaper and it has a pleat in the centre.
Pleat the upper right hand side along the middle pleat. If the border of the upper right hand side corners touches the middle pleat in a line, pleat the corners down. The result is a triangular form with the upper right hand side at the top. Pleat the upper right hand side along the middle pleat.
Unfold the upper right hand edge downwards as you did in the right hand edge. Be sure to smoothen the sheet with your finger to obtain a flatness. There is no need for the measuring to be accurate, so you can see the crease. The top and bottom edge should be pleated towards the centre so that there is enough space in the centre for a cover or postcard, about one inches.
Apex of the tissue should still point to the south. Pleat the right margin of the sheet along the bottom of the outline. Ensure that the ledge of the pleated rectangle on the right side of the sheet is flush with the ledge of the right side. You can still see the delta itself.
Use your finger to smoothen the crease and then open it. Wrap your embassy so it goes in the cover. Big maps may be too big for this technique, but normal letter-size papers print well when they' re pleated in half or one-third octaves. You can place your memo between the horizontally pleated envelopes.
Using the lower hatches of the delta and the two side longitudinal hatches, keep the messages in the cuff. Shut the flap. Refold the right side of the sheet to the side of the delta, just as before. Pleat the apex of the delta towards the centre of the square.
Now you will see that the back of your cover looks like it was purchased in the shops. Close the corners. You can use small adhesive tapes to back up the sides of the cover. Glue the cover tab with adhesive strip as well. Unfortunately, mail service often charges more for mail items that are not exactly square and have no precise outlines.
If you do not wish to incur any additional delivery charges, please manually ship your self-made envelop. When your note or postcard is very large, you may need to go to a handicraft shop to find the right sized sheet. If your map is 8.5 x 11 cm, for example, you will need at least a 12 x 12 cm sheet of each.
A small 4 x 5 in. map requires a 7 x 7 in. sheet of sheet work. Insert the tray so that its edges are diamond-shaped. Edges should point up and down, and right and right, like a diamonds. Pleat the angle edge to edge. The result is a pleat that goes from the top right to the bottom right hand edge and another from the top right to the bottom right hand edge.
Align two of the opposite sides first, folding them and then unfolding them. Do the same for the other two corners and then expand the corners so that the sheet is again lying even and diamond-shaped. Pleat the lower edge to the center pleat. Tap the bottom edge to the point where both folds cut in the center of the sheet.
Squeeze the side of the pleat so that the sheet is lying even. Unfold the shallow bottom of the nook to the centre pleat. And now the piece of wallpaper will be a triangle. Ensure that the outside corners of the sheet are almost perfect. Straighten the seam so that the sheet is laid even. Unfold the right hand side towards the centre.
Pleat the leftside border of the rectangle so that the dot goes slightly over the centre pleat. Unfold the right hand side towards the centre. You should also have the right hand side of the triangular corners overlapping the pleat. Unfold the right hand side of the border. Right hand side did not fit perfect to the centre pleat, so pleat the overlapping point back slightly.
Border of right hand side should match perpendicular pleat. The result is a small outline. Expand the little rectangle. If you put your fingers into the pleat of the small delta, you will see that the small delta opens up into a natural diamond-like form. Stretch and smooth the small outline.
Miniscule diamonds will have a pleat in the middle. Place the upper side of the envelop in the small opening. That'?s it. The cover is ready. Open the cover again to load your postcard or your note and lock the top margin after loading. Is it possible to produce the glued cover with a different format of papers?

If you want a quadratic original envelop, I would suggest using a heavier piece of tissue because it will keep the cover from dropping apart. Do you have to charge additional for shipping with the quadratic originami cover? Well, if it's about the height of a regular cover, no. Formerly I made envelopes, but I forget how I did it.
The use of coloured office stationery can give your self-made cover a funny look, and it will also make the cover non-transparent. A lot of shops have adhesive tapes with pattern on them that can also give a sweet note to any envelop. Attempt to decorate the cover with labels.
