little envelopes

last weekend i made these little envelopes using origami paper, and this mini envelope template from muji, which i've also listed in my shop.
it was so gratifying just to make something, a quick project using my hands.
i still love brown kraft paper too, especially for using with cute japanese washi masking tape.
also, i tried printing with white ink on some brown waxed paper envelopes i picked up last week,
which i also really love combined with masking tape. they are not in the shop yet, but may make it there soon...

They are so sweet. It would be so nice to receive something in a beautiful envelope like that.

I have reams of scraps that would be perfect for this! What do you use for glue? Rubber cement? Elmers?

thanks everyone!


i just used a regular glue stick, but i bet rubber cement or elmers would work just fine.

i love them too, and they were really so easy. using the template makes all the difference; it so simple that you could really figure out your own pattern, but somehow the temple is just right. (psst, if you want your own template, they're in the shop!)
