A homemade envelope for a homemade card

After successfully making my first homemade card it suddenly dawned on me that I didn’t have an envelope. Hello google :). I googled how to make an envelope and the selection was mind blowing. After folding endless pieces of paper in varying sizes and ending up with no envelopes the right size I decided to just make my own version by just folding the corners of a square piece of paper into the centre, overlapping slightly so I could glue in place. I was quite pleased with the results and think I’ll be experiment with different paper sizes in the future.
