Easy Square Origami Envelope

by Lydia Makepeace

I recently indulged in some new square business cards from MOO - the print company I adore. Receiving a MOO card is like being given a gift. (I’ve actually had people ask if they can keep the card, as if it’s something too precious to be given away!) I decided to wrap this delightful little gift with a mini origami envelope. Follow the simple instructions below to fold your own origami envelopes!

MOO square business cards are 2 1/2 inches square and I found that a 5 3/4” square piece of paper created a 2 3/4” envelope, the perfect size for these beautiful cards. You can create a variety of sizes from any type of paper you have on hand. I used a piece of vintage stationary and cut it down to size.

I use my business cards as thank you cards for my Etsy shop as well. I’m not paid to sing MOO’s praises but I love to share what I love! Try MOO for yourself and receive 10% off your first order here
