How to Fold Origami Bar Envelope

Introduction:

For this origami tutorial, we are going to make an origami bar envelope. A traditional way to reach out to someone is by writing them a letter. Using this paper envelope, you can write or draw a message to someone privately.

To do this, you will be needing a rectangular piece of paper, preferably with a 2:3 proportion. It is better to use a paper that has color on only one side so that you can write on the white side while the colored side will be the only one visible outside once finished.

Difficulty Level: Easy – Intermediate

 

Get a rectangular piece of origami paper. Face the colored side downward. If you would like, you can put a message on the white side beforehand. The next step is to bring the bottom side to the top side.

The second step is to fold downwards the top layer in half. Make sure to fold the top layer ONLY.

Again, fold downwards the top layer in half. Crease the paper well.

Fold twice along the dashed lines shown. Use the creases made as a guide.

Bring the top edge of the bottom layer downwards. Follow along the dashed line as illustrated above.
