I can't believe how fast the holidays came and went. Even though the holidays are over, I wanted to share a couple ways that I gave cash as a gift - wrapped up in origami envelopes and box types.
I learned these envelopes from a video. There are called Sy Chen's red envelope. You can custom the size just by adjusting your folds.
You can also dress up your evelopes like this:
I used origami scraps and mizuhiki cord here. For the holidays, I used Xmas wrap as a band.
I'm sure you can cutomize the size for gift cards as well. It's an interesting fold.
The next one is a fold using an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper. I forgot which book I got it from but the model was laying around and I just unfolded to see where the creases fell. It's pretty easy once you score the folds.
If you're interested in learning this fold, I can do a step-by-step picture diagram post. Just leave a comment and I'll be glad to show you....or I can try to find out which of my books I got the model from.
This next model is from Origata.com. I love this model - it folds perfectly. This is an A4 sheet. I bought this from a Japanese site awhile ago. Here is the link. It included 6 sheets with the scores on them. It's a card stock paper. You can easily fold just by copying the scores from the template. I've been trying to figure out if it's possible to do with an 8 1/2 by 11. You can use this for cash and maybe little candy treats, or maybe a couple of truffles.
