This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a butterfly origami envelope.


This origami envelope has a butterfly shape on the back of the envelope. A special folding technique that you will learn from this model is inside reverse-fold. Here I am using a A4 paper but you could use a letter sized paper instead.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making an origami envelope.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami envelope. The shape is usually a non-square paper. For this instruction, I used a A4 size paper here but you can use letter size one instead.
