Today I have a quick and easy idea for you how to fold envelopes from maps or atlas pages.

Did you know that children nowadays have more and more problems writing by hand because the use of a keyboard is becoming increasingly important in everyday life? When I heard about it recently in the regional news, I was a bit startled. It was advised to be a role model as an adult and to send a handwritten letter more often than an email. I love working analogue from time to time. That’s why I like to copy and write a letter.

With the Envelope template you can easily fold a pretty envelope. Anything that can be cut and folded can be used as a material. When an old discarded atlas fell into my hands a few days ago, I knew immediately that it was the perfect material for folding an envelope out of it.

You only have to print out the template, cut it out and then use it as a template. After you’ve cut out the envelope, all you have to do is fold it up and fix the sides with a glue stick. For an envelope in A6 format, the template should be printed on A3. But if your printer can only print A4, simply use the “Poster” option. This way, four individual pages are printed, which you later simply glue together with a little tape.

If you print the template down to A4, you can use it to fold a small mini envelope. It can be used to stow a small greeting card, for example, so that the envelope can be used as a gift tag. To do this, you simply punch a corner of the envelope and move in pretty ribbon by. Finished!

Take a look at my instructions, in which I show you how to make one out of leather Tinker the pen holder can. And if you not only like to write letters, but also write your notes by hand, then I also have a creative idea like you Design a notebook can.
