a letter that's its own envelope

During the month of january, we have sent 43 greeting cards!
I have a subscription to this fantastic dutch magazine :
It is always filled with paper goodies (wrapping paper, labels, stickers, envelopes, gorgeous layouts).
We've removed every A4 paper that we found pretty to wish a good year.
There is an elegant way to fold it into an envelope.
1. Fold it in half.
2. Fold two of the corners up to the center crease you've made during step 1.
3. Fold the left end down to the edge that's folded in.
Do the same with the right end.
Now, it should look like this :
4. Fold the two corners you've just obtained and tuck them into their little pocket.
That's it :)
You can then write, draw, paint or insert some paper goodies.
Flowlukkig nieuwjaar!
