Chinese Lantern Making. First, close the envelope. Lightly fold the envelope in half vertically. Then mark the half points at both ends. Do not create a vertical line in the middle. Just mark the two end points.
Once you mark the middle points at the two shorter sides, fold the four corners to the middle points like the picture above.
Once you are done, make another one just like it.
Make sure the end point is touching the middle point of the other envelope. One way to check is to make sure that the two triangles on either side of the end point are the same size.
Use clear tapes to tape them together on all four sides.
When you put them together, pay attention to the design of your envelopes. Make sure they are put together consistently so the overall design will look nice.
Tape them together by using clear tapes.
