About two-and-a-half years ago I made a post titled Paper to Go , about a clever folding sequence, using a single piece of paper, to make an envelope. Recently I came across instructions for another envelope that totally intrigued me.
It’s the sort of paper folding that I like the most. Looks good, feels useful, rearranges the patterns on paper well, looks great even with solid colored paper, and has a satisfying and tricky kind of logic to it.
I’ve made lots of these now, and each and every time I complete one I like this structure better. I’m going include the tutorial page that I found, but my sense is that you have to be fluent in Russian or with origami symbols to decipher these instructions. Even so, I invite you to try it.
If you have a hard time with the written directions, try watching me fold one of these. Here’s the video:
Happy paper folding!
