DIY Project || #12 || Origami Paper Envelopes

Tuesday, February 19



I recently made a trip to Blick's Art Materials in Cambridge after visiting friends in Central Square and happened upon these beautiful origami paper bundles. I am by no means an origami expert so I tried to find a 'beginner's 101' DIY project to using them in your everyday life. I decided on making these gift envelopes which can be tailored based on the size of what you wish to place inside (i.e. small gift card vs. birthday card). I simply just love the vibrant patterns of the paper and think anyone else would love it too! Let me know what you think in the comment box below!

INGREDIENTS YOU'LL NEED:

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:


It's so easy to make a bunch of these and grab 'em when you need a last minute gift package. I tied some with a natural twine string, but you could easily use ribbon, bows, stickers, or whatever you please. Let me know what you think below, and share via the "love it" button!

    3. Yea, it definitely took a while to save up! But I highly recommend going slowly
      with camera purchases, and saving up to get higher quality rather than settling for
      less. It will pay off in the long run! :) Thanks for the kind words!
